Vintage Halloween Candy Holder G.M. Company

Items from this set have long been among my favorites due to their whimsical nature. Slot and tab construction enabled manufacturers like the General Merchandise Company to ship large quantities of cardboard candy holders throughout the United States for a relative pittance as they weigh little and lay flat. The G.M. Company made some cleverly designed and very rare candy holders and decorations. Although the set this particular candy holder is from isn't particularly rare, others are. Check out the two very desirable holders made by the G.M. Company on page 53, plus the magnificent table decoration on page 296. This seller is a friend and someone I wouldn't (and don't) hesitate to buy from.
