Mint - Very Rare 1930's German Paper Mache Skull Noise Maker

This skull horn, and the several others from this set of horns, was made in the mid-1990s. They first made their appearance at an antiques show in Atlantic City and have been plaguing our fine hobby since.  They typically show up in boxes, six or so to the box. The boxes are actually old, and it is the age of the boxes that has fooled many dealers into thinking the contents, too, are old. The horns have decorative value only. Don't be fooled!
