vintage halloween BEISTLE JOL lantern 1930s
- Source: eBay
wonderful beistle jol lantern! this is from a 12 inch lantern. just the one side. there are remnents of the orange tissue sides on the back. as you can tell from pics, this jol has some issues. the top portion of the lantern is missing, cutting off the witches hat and a portion of the bats wing. there is a larger piece missing from the bottom that comes up a little bit into the cats leg. the edges of the piece have other smaller places where its frayed and the lithograph has chipped off. there is a rip from the corner of the left eye to the edge (goes directly through the witch) it has some fraying, but it looks more like a crease in the decoration even though it goes all the way through. the tissue face is mostly intacked. there is a missing piece in the right eye, the left eye is torn but all there and the mouth is missing a few tiny pieces but is mostly all there. the nose is ripped but all there. even in its current state this jol is impressive! the graphics are amazing! will make an excellent display piece. marked BEISTLE. feel free to ask me any questions, or if you require more pics.
