This is a wonderful and rare papier mache German jack o lantern with fabulous multi tiered ruffles of original crepe paper which acts as a base or collar for the painted pumpkin. Well modeled, with fabulous detailing and still vibrant coloring. Paper insert eyes, nose and teeth allow for candle light to shine through, giving an eerie appearance. Original wire handle covered in original yellow crepe paper. The back is partially cut away to allow easy access to the interior from the back. Wear to painted cheek on one side, at the high point. Paper insert at nose has a tear, but the paper insert is intact with no visible paper loss. One eyes has been repaired from the backside--looks like there was a tear to the eye and someone just reinforced it from behind, with no paper loss in front. Crepe paper edges of ruffled collar shows some wear, and has a feathered appearance, which is original, as the top tier looks to be cut like feathers.Base measures 16.5". Diameter of pumpkin is 35.5" around. Overall dustiness throughout the layers of crepe paper. A wonderful, vividly colored and charming Halloween decoration.
