A pair of adorable hand painted porcelain angel Christmas bell ornaments from 1950s Japan. They're 3 inches high, wearing hooded red capes and holding a lyre and an accordion or concertina. The angels have rosy cheeks, tiny red bow mouths, gold-tipped wings, and dark eyes with long lashes. Each has a wired ceramic clapper inside the bell gown and a molded hanger above her fur-lined hood. One has a couple of tiny paint flakes to the back of her coat, the other has a scratch to the lower side of her red coat, otherwise they're in excellent vintage condition.
