This gorgeous medium-sized German Jack o' Lantern has wonderful rich color, hand-painted green striations, and awesome hand-painted red lips.

This is a harder-to-find Jack with its original glazed surface. Jack measures a little over 5” tall, and he retains his original bottom with a faint Germany mark, his original tin candleholder, and his original wire handle. However, his paper insert – giving him his oh-so-spooky expression – has either been replaced or reinforced.

He is structurally sound, and was made from light composition wash over formed-and-stapled cardboard. He is so incredibly aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and is in great condition for his elderly age.

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 2017!
