Retro Candy Bucket (Pumpkin)
September 5, 2017
I received the papier mache pumpkin and it is exactly like the ones we had as kids in the 50s. It is so cool.

Just as pictured. Very sturdy construction. Old world Halloween charm. It can even be used as a luminary with an electric candle. Light can pass threw its eyes and mouth. I'm so glad I bought this treasure.

This kind of Halloween Pumpkin was popular when I was about 5 yr, or 6 yr. old. There was a hardware store that went all-out for Halloween. They sold all kinds of paper-mache' candy buckets Cats, Devils, Scary Pumpkins, etc. They sold noise makers and favors of all kinds. For a small child, it was a Wonderland of Halloween. I have been looking for reproductions of these articles for years. The original ones are quite expensive and are collector's items.Yours are the best reproductions from the late 40's and 50's that I have been able to find.Next year, include more pumpkins, cats and devils. Thanks for taking me back to a pleasant memory.
