Circa: 1948 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Mid Century West German Import
These three ornament size Christmas village buildings were made in Western Germany between 1947 and 1951. They're heavy painted cardboard, completely encrusted in mica and clear glitter. The church with steeple is 2-1/2 inches high, the two houses are about 1-3/4". All have wire loops on top of the roofs to hang on your tree (2 were added after the photos were taken), or they can be displayed as part of a putz village scene. The ornaments have paper labels on the bottoms reading Made in Western Germany. There is minor glitter wear to some of the corner seams, otherwise excellent vintage condition.
