Halloween Cardboard 4-sided Lamp Cover

This lantern, made by Gibson in 1929, is quite scarce. I have only seen it for sale a handful of times in nearly 25 years. As I point out on page 45, this is a good example of how clever manufacturers would re-purpose imagery as a cost savings measure. The imagery of this lantern is nearly identical to Gibson's "Ring the Belle" game, also a scarce item. The ending price of $202.51  was pretty much where it should have ended taking its condition into account.
