Three charming vintage angel diorama Christmas ornaments in their original box (which once held four). They are 3" balls coated in white coconut type snow glitter with star cutouts in the centers rimmed in gold glitter. Inside the balls are little angel figures standing in clouds of fluffy white feathers.
The ornaments look like paper mache or even eggshells but may be plastic - it's hard to tell as they're so thickly coated both inside and out. The angel figures have spun cotton heads with painted faces, chenille arms, and mesh netting gowns trimmed with gold glitter. Gold cord hangers are attached to the tops with paper Made in Japan labels still attached. They are good condition, with some of the feathery snow floating loose as shown. The box is missing the cellophane window to the lid and has general age and storage wear. The label is marked "Another Trim a Tree Product, Egg Ornament 4 Pcs Ass't Col, By Noel Decorations Inc., 200 Fifth Ave., NY, Made In Japan".
