SCARCE Antique Vintage Halloween Noisemaker Witch Paper Mache Germany German

This is not a vintage item. A host of different designs were imported into the USA beginning in the mid-to-late 1990s from Germany to capitalize on the strong interest in vintage Halloween collectibles. These were made and imported almost certainly with an intent to deceive new collectors. They succeeded. One trick that was used with these was to import them in generic, but truly old, cardboard boxes. This gave these fakes a veneer of respectability, even fooling some long-term collectors for a time. Don't waste your money. 

03/29 Update: Unfortunately, some poor buyer wasted nearly $140 on this non-vintage item.
