1925 Halloween Wicket Witch Basket Decoration Made in U. S. A.

This Beistle favor basket looks to be in exceptional condition. Beistle ultimately produced four favor basket designs, selling them from 1927-1931. This version tends to bring the most dollars second only to the witch wearing a skull decorated garment. (You can find all four designs on page 225.) A few of Beistle's early advertisements to dealers showed four favor basket designs with one featuring skeletons. That one was never produced. Instead, the skeleton design was dropped in favor of the pedestrian owl design. There is no documentation explaining this seemingly last minute change.
