Antique Halloween Dancing Witch and Pumpkin Windup on Wheeled Platform

Exquisite Halloween Toy

Circa 1910: Collectors of early toys, windups and Halloween toys will rejoice at this rare example of a witch dancing with a pumpkin-headed genteman. Perfectly preserved and working, this rare antique Halloween windup of a dancing paper mache witch and pumpkin perched on a wooden platform with metal wheels glides playfully when wound. It is interesting to find a Halloween toy that depicts a joyful dance and celebration rather than something of a darker nature: a treat rather than a trick! This stupendous German wind-up will be right at home even in the most advanced collection.
