Here is a fantastic old witch candy container. There are no markings but this is almost definitely an early 20th Century German composition piece. She is approximately 5" high, 2 1/2" across the base and 4 1/4" across at the widest part. She is very old and shows her age a bit. The brim and tip of her hat appear to be missing as are her paper eye inserts and bail handle. There is a crack in the composition on the bottom of her base but the piece sits flat and does not wobble. Her face is in great condition and what a face it is - wonderfully intense and full of character! Malevolent and goofy at the same time. Everything a witch should be.

THE WITCH HAS BEEN REUNITED WITH HER HAT BRIM! ...ANOTHER BUYER AT THE ESTATE SALE WHERE SHE WAS PURCHASED FOUND A 4 1/2" WIDE BLACK CIRCLE IN WITH HIS BOXES AND BROUGHT IT TO US. IT FITS LIKE A GLOVE AND FORMS A 1 1/4" BRIM FOR OUR LITTLE WITCH'S HAT. THE BRIM IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION AND SLIPS RIGHT ON. I'VE POSTED PICTURES OF THE BRIM IN PLACE AND BY ITSELF.
