"Black cat on a fence. Halloween two days hence."  Old English Wives' Tale.

Meet Edgar, the vintage candy bucket, who smiles widely in anticipation for his big night when he will be filled to the brim with sweets and treats. A vintage reproduction of a traditional handmade pail that was a favorite treat tote used by masquerading children in the quaint villages of New England. 

Mache with metal handle . 6 x 6". Limited Availability.


Paper mache’ pumpkins became popular in the US in the 1950s. During the early 1940s, sugar was rationed to aid the WWII war effort and delayed the spread and popularity of trick-or-treating until the late 1940s. The paper mache’ was made of egg crate pulp molded in a pumpkin shape. Colorful tissue paper was used for the eyes and mouth. They were not true jack-o-lanterns since they were flammable, but candy containers. Because of their semi-disposable nature, these little funny faces are rare and collectible.
