Circa: 1960s Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Mid Century Japan Import
Six delightfully retro nutcracker soldier head pixie elf Christmas ornaments, made in 1960s Japan. They have soft doll-like plastic vinyl pixie heads and tall flocked hats decorated with gold and flocked paper braids, gold foil scrap medallions, and wired tinsel plumes (most of the plumes were bent in down for the picture - they are now standing up straight). Five are about 4 inches high with gold cord hangers. The sixth is larger and has arms to hold his gold plastic trumpet - this one has a chenille stem at the top of his cap. Some of their faces could use a mild cleaning, otherwise the pixies are in very good vintage condition.
