A Gallery of Vintage Beistle Halloween Decorations

Ephemera
You probably have never heard of the Beistle Company, but chances are you've seen their Halloween decorations. The company was founded in 1900 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by Martin Luther Beistle and is still a major party products manufacturer. (For a more thorough company history, check out this page.) While Beistle still produces a wide range of year-round party goods, their classic Halloween decorations are how most of us know them. This gallery offers but a sampling of Beistle's paper Halloween decorations that have been ubiquitous in American households for generations.
