VERY FINE+ Vintage Halloween Paper Mache Pulp Jack o Lantern Decoration 40s-50s

1950s pulp JOLs made in the U.S. were so ubiquitous when I began collecting back in the later 1980s that I decided to pursue other genres. So, to this very day I don't have a single one in my multi-thousand item collection. Seeing the magnificence of this impressively large specimen does make me realize how compelling these can be in a display. My long-time friend, ziz, has scared up a real treat with this one.
I will auction some great items, some more rare than others, on this very site beginning May 3rd. The preview for the ~70 lots is set to begin on April 26th. Some of these lots will be comprised of super pulp JOLs like this one, so stay tuned!
