    Vintage Baseball Figural Candy Container Clothed in a circa 1910-15 baseball uniform, sporting a glove, and holding a ball, this candy container stands 11" tall. Uniformed in period garb and marked "Made in Germany" on the bottom of his shoe, the figure is made of a combination of papier-mâché and composition. With lifelike features the head removes to reveal the hidden candy treasure trove. Candy containers and early sports items are both avidly collected; combining the two fields in a single item is a unique occurrence. We have talked with seasoned candy container specialists, and none recall seeing this great item before. Seldom does a piece of this quality cross the auction block. You will search a long time to add such a significant piece to your collection.
