vintage Paper Halloween Die Cut witch&Cauldron,Black Cat-candy container

I feel pieces to this set of six have never gotten the respect they should from the marketplace. These are whimsical, cleverly designed slot-and-tab candy containers issued by the General Merchandise Company in the middle 1940s through the very early 1950s. Although not at all truly rare, you still don't often see them in this seemingly pristine condition. To see the others that comprise a complete set, turn to page 54 of my newly published third edition.
