Large & Rare Vintage Halloween Beistle He Luhrs 3-d Cat Table Decoration 30s-40s For Sale

Large & Rare Vintage Halloween Beistle He Luhrs 3-d Cat Table Decoration 30s-40s

Welcome Fellow Vintage and Antique Hallowe'en and Paper Ephemera Enthusiasts! Many of you know us as longtime collectors and sellers of vintage and antique Hallowe'en, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter memorabilia, antique dolls, old toys, and lovely old china and glassware. For your all-year-long Hallowe’en loving pleasure, we are HAUNTINGly happy to present a PURRRRfectly wonderful, RARE, 3-dimensional black cat diecut table decoration that was made in the USA by the Beistle Company! This kitty has the H.E. Luhrs mark.ThisBIG andimposing kitty cat – with his super-SPOOKY expression – was made in the late 1930s to the early 1940s. He stands a whopping19 ¼” long x 12 ½” high, and when positioned in place h is 3 ¼” wide.One just like him can be seen on page 259 of Mark B. Ledenbach’s outstanding book “Vintage Halloween Collectibles; An Identification & Price Guide (Second Edition)”. Using his relative scarcity index, Mark has assigned the number “2” for this decoration, which means RARE.As Mark mentions, the front legs fit into two slots in the base and the head is on a separate flap that can move away from the body – giving this item a simple 3-D effect. Interesting to note is that our example has never had those two slot tabs removed! One slot is marked Made in USA, Copr. H.E. Luhrs. The other slot tab explains how to position this decoration.The exact condition is as follows: his head has a reinforced crease to one ear and either a reinforced crease to the head or a repair. There is another elongated crease to Kitty’s arched back, three creases to two paws, and a very light crease to the tail. There are two tiny surface lifts to points on the tail.We particularly love Kitty’s superb and impressivecountenance – which is so typical oficonic Beistle design and always make their pieces so desirable. If you are a collector who loves exceedingly hard-to-find vintage Hallowe'en decorations as we do, and you love the superb artistry that was present in pre-war Beistle creations, then this MAGICally magnificent kitty – with his super-spooky expression – just might be the perfect acquisition for you!Please remember Ziz’s motto: Eat, Drink and Be Scary!No BONES about it, we have SCARED up a great deal for true Halloween DIE-hards!

The gray ghosts slyly prowl.
