Vintage German Pumpkin Man Candy Container Halloween

Considering the condition issues, this candy container did well. Made in Germany sometime between 1919-early 1920s, this originally stood on a circular wood base. In fact, you can see a fragment from the now-missing base in one of the listing's photos. It's twine stem at the crown of the head is nearly gone and is seems a little soiled, although that could be just the underlit photos. At ~4.5" high, it seems to be a bit smaller than the one in the collection shown on page 73. German candy containers/nodders/figurals are an increasingly perilous genre for collectors. I don't buy many of these anymore unless I can examine the item in-person or unless I have confidence in the seller.
