SCARCE Vintage Halloween Pumpkin Candy Container Purse, USA, E. Rosen Co., 1930s

These cleverly designed candy purses made by Rosen during the 1930s used to pop up more often than I've been seeing them do so lately. Rosen made a small variety of point-of-sale displays that I avidly collect. (Please refer to pages 116-118 to see those in the collection.) Although this isn't one of those, it exemplifies the attention to detail that characterizes Rosen output during this period. Of course, another positive of this listing is the seller, long on my list of those with whom I eagerly do business.
