Vintage Antique Rare Halloween Candle Black Cat Place Cards Dennison

This has to be one of Dennison's most inspired designs. The artist packed a lot of detail in such a small item, meant to be used as a place card. This first appeared in 1928. As I point out on page 257, "Notice the cat's face in the flame and the candle's expression. Although not particularly scarce, this iconic, diminutive Dennison masterpiece consistently sells at or above the cited value. It was sold with stock number H565." 

04/16 Update: This great piece of ephemera changed hands for $100.99, slightly exceeding sustainable guide value of $85.
