One of the many great things about Halloween, are all the creepy lights that shine through the windows to guide Trick or Treaters and party guests through the darkened October nights. There are all kinds of blow mold Halloween figures out there…One of my personal favorites is from the P.T.L. Novelty Company (Brooklyn, New York) that made “Spook-O-Lites” (with Blinking Bulb). They made a devil (as I’m posting a picture of), a Jack-O-Lantern, and a skull. I’m pretty sure these molds were made by the Rosbro company originally, as you see these same mold designs on candy containers around the same time (mid-late 60’s) if not earlier. 
The going rate for these mini lamps seem to fluctuate quite a bit. The devil always seems to sell for a bit more than the pumpkin, and the skull doesn’t seem to pop up as often anymore. Out of the box, you are looking at $40-$80. In the box (like this one) they will usually sell for between $90-$140 (once again, more for the devil and skull version, less for the Jack-O-Lantern).
