Tissue Paper Decorations (Germany? '20s?)

Talk about Halloween ephemera.

It doesn't get more ephemeral than tissues.

"Each has two pieces of red and white string on the top right and left. One has three sheets, including the top illustrated sheet, followed by an orange tissue and what looks to be a piece of black carbon. The others all have two sheets."

Probably made in Germany, the early 20th century cultural hotbed of Halloweeniana.
