What a BEWITCHING and colorful authentic vintage Hallowe'en candy container! This slot-and-tab identically-dual-sided candy holder was produced in the USA by G.M. Company in the mid-1940s.

This piece features witches flying on their broomsticks, against a midnight Hallowe'en sky, with flying black bats accompanying her. A glowing smiling crescent moon completes the scene. The heavy cardboard used here was diecut and lithographed using magnificent colors.

It is marked G.M. Company, HR5-B. This is an original! This piece has been reproduced in later years, but this is NOT a reproduction.

It measures 3.5” high x 2” wide x 4.5” long.

The condition is good, but the tabs do have some wear, and there is some discoloration on the underside and in the interior -- no doubt from old candy. The number “5” was written inside of the piece. There is a small surface lift near one tab.

This charming piece of holiday history would be ideal for the collector of Hallowe'en memorabilia, vintage toys and / or interesting candy containers.

Oh, there’ll be spooky doings
When cometh Hallowe'en,
With black cats loudly meowing,
And witches to be seen;
For ‘tis the night when bats careen,
And hoots the hooting owl,
While in the heavy shadows
The gray ghost slyly prowl.

Happy Hallowe'en!
