Old German Porcelain Halloween Pumpkin covered box Jack o Lantern

This is a rare jam pot from the adult-sized porcelain "tea set" made in Germany as early as about 1914. This is only the second time in 26 years of collecting that I have seen this item. (I bought the one in the collection several years ago in a private sale.) This one has a number of surface flaws but brought what I consider to be a strong price nonetheless. The Germans made three sizes of these porcelain sets. The largest, to which this jam pot belongs, was marketed to adults. Any pieces from this set are extremely desirable. Kudos to the prevailing bidder!!
