This is a very rare large, parade scale jack o lantern, German in origin, dating circa 1900. Papier mache with original cardboard base with metal tube where a candle would be place. Papier mache jol has outstanding molded detailing and lovely original painted colors of tan and butterscotch. Wire handle. Paper insert eyes and crimson colored crinoline inserts in open mouth allow for the candle light to shine in an eerie manner. Same expression, face, etc. on back and front. Nice condition with very little wear to high points in some areas, such as the ridge of nose on one side. Some wrinkles or creases in the papier mache which adds to the old world look of this wonderful Halloween decoration. He has a circumference of 43", measuring across the tip of his nose and stands approximately 12.5" tall. One side has wear and some tearing to paper insert of the more open eye. The other eyes are all in good condition. Please click here to view additional magnified photos and click on your BACK button in your browser to return to this page.
