Circa: 1960 Country of Origin: United States Manufacturer: Mid Century Japan Production
A wonderfully retro Christmas pixie elf, made in Japan in the 1960s. The classic pixie sits amid a spray of silver and pink foil tinsel that unfolds sparkler style when the rubber band at the tube base is released. It's still sealed in its original package so I can't show you what it looks like with the tinsel down, but it's a neat effect.
About 7-1/2" tall, the decoration can be used as a tree topper (just remove the gold foil stopper below the tube), table centerpiece, or even hung from the ceiling, window, or tree from the gold cord attached to his cap. There is a marker price on the cardboard header, otherwise the pixie is in mint, never used condition.
