This charming and talented musically-inclined diecut decoration features a Jack o' Lantern-headed musician playing the accordion, and who is very reminiscent of the earliest version of “Mickey Mouse.”

 

He was made in Germany in the 1920s or 1930s, and is one of a set of six band members – all of whom play different musical instruments. He was made from thick, heavily-embossed cardboard or pressed paper pulp and painted in outstanding shades of bright orange and black, and he has a magnificent original glossy finish.

 

He is embossed Germany on one foot, and he measures 7 ¾” high x 3 ¼” wide. One like him can be seen on page 186 of the outstanding reference book entitled “Vintage Halloween Collectibles: Third Edition” by esteemed collector, expert and author Mark B. Ledenbach, and he is considered to be SCARCE.

I love his endearing expression! There is a little give to his legs with a light crease where one leg meets his pants. There is a tiny bit of crackling to the paint and a little bit of wear at the hanging hole. The back of the ears has some paper and glue residue, no doubt from being lovingly treasured and mounted in a keepsake album. There is pencil writing on the back side only.

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!
