Old German Halloween JOL Pumpkin Man Paper Mache Painted Head Pipe Noisemaker

This is a fantasy piece first imported to the United States through Blumchen's and through a prolific Germany-based dealer who used to set up and sell at the Atlantic City show. I would always visit his booth to get a preview of the fantasy pieces that would insidiously worm their way into vintage collections. I recall seeing this kind of item, as well as several others in the "set'" around 1996.
