Vintage / Antique 1930s Halloween Paper Mache Pulp Jack-O-Lantern Devil. Made by the F. Burt Company, of Buffalo, NY during the early 1930s. Really cool if you think about it! Measures about 6.5″ tall and 5.5″ wide at its widest point. Antique, and overall I would say well preserved condition given the fact it is probably about 85-90 years old! There is some paint rubbed off in a few areas, also some of the bottom has worn down, and it has a hole in the back of the head. I believe the insert is original, and as you can see it is thin so it also does have some rips/tears. This came from a local, Buffalo NY estate sale. I was told by the estate sale company that a large amount of Halloween decorations were found at the bottom of a box of vintage clothing and the kids of the deceased had no idea they were even there; they had never seen them before in their lives, so they suspect that the items belonged to their grandparents. When I went to the sale, the story made sense. There was a lot of “junk” hoarded everywhere, so it was. To me that they hadn’t realized what had been kept where for a long time. The kids are in their 60s, so we are talking about items that were not given any special storage treatment, but which have probably not seen the light of day for at least 60 years if not more! Pretty cool I think! Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to score this rare, “un-vaulted” item with such a neat history! Please review all pictures and full description carefully.
