"A mask tells us more than a face." Oscar Wilde

Called a choir boy because he seems to be singing, Clarence the Choir Boy Candy Bucket is a vintage reproduction in keeping with his traditional roots. This type of handmade pail was a favorite treat tote in many New England villages and is a favorite amongst collectors.

Mache 8 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 and they were not true jack-o-lanterns since they were flammable, but perfect for candy collecting containers. Because they are delicate and handmade, the little antique character faces are rare and collectible.
