Welcome to Gypsy Madonna. May I offer.....

AGE: C.1940 or so

ITEM: An adorable candy container that would have been found at a halloween party table! Made of wood, the container features a black cat toward the back, and on the top, of the rim. To make the container a little more personalized the hostess wrapped the b ase in orange cellophane and tied it with black ribbon.

CONDITION: Very nice. The cat litho is great with just 2 very thin scratches - 1 near the top of the tail and the other across the midsection (my pics make them look larger than they really are). The wood container has no breaks or chips. The cellophane is so old it is starting to come apart at the ends. Of course, the first thing I would do is clip this off the container and maybe add new cellophane. However, it is period approrpriate to the piece and I consider the disintegration of the plastic a natural occurence and NOT a faux pas.

HALLMARKS: None. Place and era of manufacture is hard to determine.

SIZE: Height is 3-3/4" approx; width at base is 2-1/16"".

FINAL COMMENTS: I consider this piece to be practically perfect and most unusual. It's so very Halloween!
