This wonderful papier-mache jester lantern is considered a Christmas piece. He has curls of mohair sticking out from under his cap and a gathered lace collar; paper inserts for eyes and teeth. The inside is heavily coated with wax where a candle was once lit at the holidays. Measures 4 1/4 inches tall, not including the wire handle.
