Antique German Halloween Witch Candy Container with Lantern Head c1920

Savvy collectors wait until right after the holiday to attempt to scoop up bargains from those sellers who choose to list fine items after what I would consider the optimal time. There are many examples of this on Ebay since Halloween and this is only the latest. Although the body of this candy container is arguably the most common around, the quality and detail of the face is compelling and should have caused the candy container to bring far more dollars than it did. Whomever bought this got a true bargain.
