Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: K-T Japan
Typically thought of as a Christmas decoration, this vintage Japan choir boy wall pocket is not specific to any holiday and can be displayed year round. It's 6-1/4" high by about 6 inches wide, featuring a choir boy holding a song book in his extended hands, framed against a stained glass arched church or cathedral window. At either side of the base are candle holders sized to fit regular taper candles, and the back is a planter with a hole for hanging on the wall (or it can rest flat on a surface of course).
The underside has a red and gold foil label with an image of a pine tree and K-T Japan. Red felt once covered the bottom, the remains of which can be seen around the bottom edges. There are no chips or cracks but the wall pocket is heavily crazed with considerable staining to the back and interior of the planter, some to the candle cups as well. There are many methods of removing the stains such as hydrogen peroxide, Oxy-Clean, etc. but I will let the buyer determine whether and how to do this.
