 PAIR OF PUMPKIN HEADS IN HUMAN FORM


* Sold *




 
 

PUMPKINS WITH HUMAN FACES WERE GROWN BY JOHN CZESKI, OHIO FARMER IN 1933. HE FASHIONED A CAST IRON HEAD MOLD AROUND A GROWING PUMPKIN TO FORM A PUMPKIN WITH A HUMAN FACE. HE SOLD MOST OF HIS 300 MOLDS, SOME BROUGHT AS MUCH $500 EACH IN THE 30'S. I HAVE 11 ARTICLES AND LETTERS DETAILING HIS HOBBY AND EXPERIENCE WITH THE PUMPKIN HEAD MOLDS. (COMES WITH THE HEADS) I HAVE ONLY SEEN 1 OTHER MOLD A FEW YEARS AGO. THE HEADS ARE IN 2 PARTS AND ARE MOUNTED ON WOODEN BASES FOR DISPLAY. UNUSUAL, AND THE ARE 11" TALL X 8" X 6". IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
