Vintage Dancing Skeleton Halloween Decoration

Virtually all of the value of this lot is in the rare envelope. The skeleton is almost immaterial. As with all of the early Beistle packaging, this medium-weight cardboard envelope is hard to locate in decent condition. Although the overall graphics aren't as interesting as their later envelopes containing elves or garlands, the straight-forward imagery is endearing and absolutely captures that early era of greater innocence.
