Vintage Beistle Halloween Die Cut Candy Container

This seller made an error selling this rare Beistle candy basket for less than $59.99 through a Best Offer scenario. Beistle made this for a single season in 1921. The designer went all out decorating every surface with now-iconic as well as odd art choices. (Check out the pine tree on one of the sides.) I haven't seen one of these come to market in many, many years. Given how hot Beistle is at the moment, I feel confident in asserting that an auction ending price would have far exceeded SGV of $325. These are very delicate items, and this seems to be in superb condition given that caveat. Reviewing the sold items, I see this seller sold a number of rare Beistle items for far less than SGV.
