Every type of industry learned to price according to weight.It took time for the weighing practices to spread from town to town, from North to South and East to West.Commercial promotions began and The Easter Season was created for profit.The USAs late entry into the market impacts what we collect, see and pay for these items in todays market. Some have painted-on clothes, fabric clothes or no clothes.Scales are an important part of todays business world, manufacturing processes and home life.We buy things with the weight printed on the package/label.I display my Easter collectibles for a full month before Easter Day.
They want to sell a day/month/years worth of work and labor. Will someone pay more to me because my haul (my products, my goods) is larger, bigger, heavier and better quality?
Look back to perhaps 1900, 1925, 1940, 1950 and remember.
Germany is well noted for being the pioneer in this industry, specifically with candy containers but the whole industry as well. Germany remained the leader in Easter items for many years.
An often overlooked Easter collectible is post cards - they are bright, cute, even funny, old, authentic, made with high quality materials/ink/designers/drawers, and still inexpensive.
In contrast, the inexpensive 1970-2000 Easter items are worth - today, made with cheap materials and have no realistic price increase potential.
