Circa: 1950s Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Holt Howard
Still sealed and mint in its original package, this 1950s Christmas rose decoration is so pretty. About 4 by 5 inches with long wired folded stems, the five stiffened fabric red roses have red mercury glass bead ornament centers and are backed by lush furry velvet green leaves. The package header says "Christmas Trim for Packages and Trees, Another Holt-Howard Original Japan". A gold and red foil HH Japan label is attached to the wired stems. Although the colors are indeed Christmasy, the roses would make a pretty corsage any time of year. There is an old grease pencil store price on the cardboard header, otherwise perfect condition with no tears or problems.
