Vintage German Halloween Collectibles

Early 20th century German-made Halloween decorations are highly sought after by Halloween memorabilia collectors. The curious thing about this is Halloween isn’t traditionally celebrated in Germany. Prior to World War II papier-mâché Halloween Jack-O-Lanterns and candy containers were manufactured in Germany for export to the American. Many were disposed of after use making those that survived extremely rare and valuable, selling at auction into the thousands of dollars.
