Dating from the early 1900's - 1920's, a composition Thanksgiving turkey candy container with metal feet.  There is a cardboard pull out plug on the back of turkey to fill with candy,  This colorful bird stands 3-1/2"in height with 99.9% of the hand painting still remaining on the turkey. The use of white paint for accenting the body and tail feathers, makes this guy stand out.   If you notice in one of the photos, of the back of the turkey, there are pit marks.  This has occurred in the making and was painted, over when the paint was applied.

No markings as to origin. 

The only flaw I can find, other than the pitmarks in manufacturing, are the metal feet.  There is one toe missing on either foot. One a back toe and the other a front.

A neat vintage specimen for a holiday display or to add to a collection.
