Very cool skulls at that. My grandmother lived in a tiny neighborhood of tiny homes loaded with tiny old people on a tiny one-way street. As a boy, visiting her during the Halloween season was amazing. Faded paper pumpkins, orange light-bulbed candle sticks in windows, and old ceramic decorations on sills looking out into the street. A neighbor of hers had a beautiful white skull with a bright green bulb inside its head. The sidewalk went right up to the side of the house, so you could stand right up against the window to observe the creepy skull.

Found these neat skulls and it reminded me of that great boney ceramic decoration.

This last one's my personal favorite.

I agree the one with the banged up grill is the most authentic looking.
