A neat accordion folding crepe paper Halloween pumpkin lantern. Although not marked, I am sure it is Germany.  Dates from the 1920's to 1940's.   This is a double sided pumpkin with the two halves folding together at the top for hanging.  A small wire loop fastening the two halves together. 

Top opening for placing a candle inside in a tin candle holder - amazing to think these might have been lit?    You wonder how any of them survived.

Printed smiley face on both sides .  The entire pumpkin measures 15" long, including the wire clip x 14" diameter.

Condition: As is.  Some tearing along the folds at the top edge.  More on one side than the other.   Even with the fragile nature of the paper, it still is basically intact.
