Vintage Halloween Gibson 1930s Paper Lantern/lamp Shade Witch In Haunted House For Sale
This is for one 1930s vintage Halloween paper lantern by Gibson. The orange and black silhouette imagery features one panel with the profile of a witch delicately stirring her fiery, smoking cauldron. The alternating panel shows the witch in her rickety old cottage bordered by a wooden fence. While the witch has grabbed her broom for a ride on the town, the night is already full of bats, an owl, and her black cat lurking about on the old shingle roof near a smoking chimney stack. A single side of this lantern, when assembled, is 4 1/2" wide at bottom, 3" wide at top, and 5" tall. Lantern assembles by slot and tab on the top (slot and tab were not fully assembled here to preserve piece). It would make a great shade for a hanging pendant lamp, or (as shown in night photos) looks great lit with a battery-powered candle as a table decoration. Please see large detail photos with the description. Items in great condition with strong colors and paper in near seemingly unused condition. There is some noticeable white smudging on one of the house panels, and in general visible on the matte black surfaces of the material. And the socket hole looks a bit worn, otherwise edges and corners are mostly crisp with tiny dings.
