TOLEDO Halloween JACK-O-LANTERN TIN PARADE PUMPKIN - Original Vintage. TOLEDO Halloween JACK-O-LANTERN TIN PARADE PUMPKIN - Original Vintage. This is the last early tin pumpkin parade lantern I have to offer here and it is a wonderful original rare find with great paint and is perfect for your antique Halloween collection or for a holiday museum display. If you collect antique Halloween treasures you know these are the best of the best and the holy grail of what we all search for but aren't always lucky enough to acquire. Check out all the pics that were taken in natural day light and not enhanced or filtered for more info as they are usually the best description for you to see and observe the important details. And please note this one has some great advertising on the back from a clothing company as it was given as a gift for purchases made back in the day and I've never seen another one like this anywhere with advertising among all of the sweet old pumpkins like this that can be found in many private and public prominent holiday and museum collections around the world. Check out the pics for more info on the name etc but I do believe it says R. H. Thayer Co. Clothiers which I was told was located in Detroit on Woodward Avenue way back when. If you know much about these antique pumpkin parade lanterns you know most of them were made in Toledo, Ohio back in the very early 1900's by Toledo Metal Sign Company which held the original patent for these back in 1902. You can find a lot more info if you do an internet search for them and there is way too much information to write here but they do have a very interesting history and are highly sought after by many collectors. They are designed to fit on wood poles or sticks and were usually carried by children in holiday parades. I've seen them with fabric capes around the base of the pumpkin where it attaches to the stick also but this one is as you see it in the pics and a very good example of original paint with natural aging and wear from being used and stored over the years. They were all hand painted and if you compare this one with others you will see they all have different mustache versions and eyebrows or other facial features but the cut outs are usually all the same and many of them had original mica inserts that included eyes and teeth but this one is just as you see it and the battery operated grubby tea light is not included in this sale and is for display only but it looks way better in person with a real early candle in it if you choose to add one of your own. The original candle holder inside remains attached and intact and is still very strong and sturdy. The original top wood finial is still attached and in place as you see also. This measures about 21" in circumference and is a bit over 7 inches tall and you can add another couple of inches to include the top finial and wire holder on the bottom where it fits onto a stick. It opens from the side for lighting the candle inside as you see in the pics. Again this is all original and as found as you see in the pics so please study them closely to observe expected wear and paint loss etc which is to be expected of an item of this era. There are no dents or other apologies to mention and it's a wonderful investment piece for your collection of holiday earlies. These are getting SO hard to find for purchase these days as you know if you have been searching for just the right one because collectors are holding on to them and I don't know of any in museums on daily or seasonal display anymore but this one would be a wonderful addition to your private or museum collection for sure.
