A hand crafted early 20th century papier Mache American carnival head. This unusual yet fun figure head of a witch, is constructed using layers of old newspaper. With hand painted detail, this item would likely have been used in some form of a street parade/carnival of sorts we assume. Size of inches: H 16” x W 13” x D 13” Period: 1920 - 1940 Completely solid in structure and form, with natural wear and patination across all surfaces due to age. This item is made from paper and due to its age and use the surface is somewhat worse for wear. With worn and loss of detail in section, flaked paper and paint, damage to the nose as shown and the hat is also worn with loss to the edges. In overall presentable condition considering its age and years of use. A rare survivor.
