Halloween Candy Container Lantern Pear Head Papier Mache 8" tall

This is one of the finer German lantern/candy container combos I've seen listed on Ebay for many moons. The styling and detailed compo work epitomizes the height of German artistry. Given the slummy nature of Ebay of late, I feel this was the wrong venue on which to list this super item. As you can see, it fetched a mere fraction of what I feel it would have brought at an auction house like Morphy's. The lucky buyer got a steal.
