Original 1940's Flaming Halloween Fortune Tissue Candle Holder

Beistle produced this game in the very early 1930s. Its graphics and just overall appeal as a game is underwhelming. Prices for the complete games have been drifting downward for nearly a decade as collectors reach the same conclusion. The seller incorrectly assumes the three-sided lantern was part of the set. The lantern was made around the same time but by an entirely different company, The Gibson Art Company of Cincinnati, Ohio. 

07/22 Update: This lot brought $325.20, with the significant majority of the value tied up in the rare cardboard envelope for this rather dull game. This is typically seen with a glassine envelope.
