Lot Details
A Touchstone Pictures prop of the mayor’s hearse from “Nightmare Before Christmas”
1993, the wooden hearse draped with rubber textured curtains and a black cat hood ornament.

The Nightmare Before Christmas was the spooky and spectacular tale of how Jack Skellington, the beloved Pumpkin King of Halloweentown, accidentally stumbles upon the entryway to Christmastown and becomes instantly enraptured with the bright colors, decorations, toys and warm spirit that he discovers there. Obsessed with bringing Christmas under his control, he enlist his loyal townspeople to help him become a substitute Santa and create a “new and improve” version of the holiday. As Jack soon discovers, even the best laid plans can go seriously astray.
