Empire Pails

Empire Plastics produced Halloween blow molds including Trick or Treat pails from the 1960's through 2001.  Most of their pails were the common Jack O' Lantern pails like those I've previously posted.  They later produced non-Jack O' Lantern pails like these I found.  These came late in the company's existence, but I like them, particularly this monster pail which was produced from 1989 to 1994.

This Ghost pail was produced from 1990 to 1998.

Empire Plastics' blow mold division was sold to General Foam in 2001.  General Foam produced pails from the Empire molds until they closed production in 2017.  Some of the original Empire molds were sold to companies such as Cado Plastics, some were divided among independent companies and the remainders were scattered to parts unknown.


  1. I guarantee any kid toting a Moe Howard bucket won't be getting raisins or a toothbrush.

  2. Imagine McD's selling that first bucket!

  3. Very cool and I agree with top cat - that bucket does look like Moe of the Stooges - yuk yuk yuk.
