Vintage Gibson Art Co. Halloween Witch Seals + More Orig. Slip Box Great Find :
Here is an OriginalSlip Box of Vintage Gibson Art Company Halloween Witch Seals (6) + More; including (2) Christmas and (2) additional other Halloween Seals. These are a great find and quite hard to come by, these days. I believe these were made in the 1920's. None of these seals appear to have been used on any surface previously. There are six "witch on a broomstick" seals,marked on the back of each"Gibson Lines", showing impressive embossed lithographic design and quality colors. The witch seals measure approx. 1.25" in each direction. One of the Christmas seals is also a Gibson Lines example, as well. One of theother Halloween seals is marked Dennison, and the other two seals are by an unknown manufacturing company, but nice additions to have.
I have taken many photos for this listing, some using magnification, so please look at them using the zoom feature for an even more detailed inspection of the condition of thesewell cared-forseals. Some of the witch seals show a slight bend on the crescent moon feature, a lost broomstick end, or a very slight loss on the finish; but overall, they are in remarkably good condition. Again,some of these photos were taken using magnification, so you won't see most of these minor flaws unless you are very (very) close-up. The photos really only prove the high quality ofGibson's lithographic work.
The slip box is a very nice find, too, and I've included good photos of it, as well. The box shows little wear, considering its age, with fairly minor edge or finish wear, and two corners of the inner box have split, as you can see in the photos. They are not complete splits, so the box stays mostly firm. The top of the box has a very nice carved pumpkin and black cat seal, too. The bottom of the box has the Gibson Lines label on it, as well.
These have become quite difficult to find, so here's your chance to add them to your collection. Good Luck !
