This auction featured a collection of four vintage Halloween postcards, published by John Winsch with artwork by Samuel Schmucker. This particular Schmucker design is a white-on-white variation of another series of postcards. All of these cards are in very good condition, with most unposted.
“Halloween Greetings” with a woman wearing a red dress kicking her leg up as she sits atop a jack o’lantern with a black cat and bat.
“The Hallowe’en Witch’s Wand” shows a she-devil and green elves emerging from a pumpkin.
“A Hallowe’en Morning” shows a mummer sitting in a tree with owls set against the moonlight.
“A Halloween Wish” shows a young woman wearing a gown cozying up to an anthropomorphic pumpkin man. Postmarked October 30, the evening before Halloween.
