Two Vintage Halloween Decoration- Pumpkin by Beistle & Novel Construction 1930's

Wow, I am disappointed with this seller. I bought this lot at the conclusion of its original listing last week. When I got it, I discovered that the head of the Beistle Johnny Pumpkin was married to the body, meaning that two items, not originally manufactured together, were fused to make one ersatz "complete" item. Upon receiving the lot, for which I paid a total of $77.20, I discovered this and immediately contacted the seller for a full refund. To his credit, the refund was quickly given. However, he has now re-listed the same lot without explicitly acknowledging the ersatz nature of one of the lot's two items. That is deceptive and reflects quite poorly on this seller.
