Circa: 1950s Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Delta Novelty
These sweet little 1950s angels can stand by themselves, hang from the Christmas tree as ornaments, or even serve as tree topper for a miniature or tabletop size tree. They're about 3 inches high with wired pale pink and white tulle wings and gowns. The heads are well-molded paper maché, their pixie-like facial features are nicely hand painted, and their hair is made of fine yellow feathers with a gold foil ring halo.
One angel has mercury glass bead "buttons" down the center of her dress and holds a scrap foil harp in her white chenille arms. The other angel has a flocked poinsettia flower at her waist. Both have Made in Japan labels at the backs. There is some wear to the delicate hair feathers, and 3 areas of sheer chiffon tulle separation from the wires at two wing tips and a corner of one of the dresses.
