Vintage Halloween Pumpkin Head Girl Pressed Paper Pulp Made in Germany 1930's

At this time of the year the listings in the Vintage Halloween category swell dramatically with much of it forgettable, newly made things that should be listed elsewhere. So, it is nice to see some gems scattered amongst the garbage. This "JOL maid with bangs" diecut was made in Germany during the 1920s. Its RSIN is 2 as it doesn't surface much. This looks to be bright overall with a hint of fading only to the extremes of the one side. This ~8.25" beauty makes a statement in a display. I like that the seller started it at a reasonable $20 and trusts in the auction format. Sustainable guide value is $165.
