Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Ardalt
These three adorable little 1950s porcelain ceramic angel bells are Christmas ornaments, made in Japan by Ardalt. They're about 2-1/2 inches high, each holding a banner with Merry Christmas greetings in different languages - Swedish, German, and Polish. At their backs are signs reading "In Swedish (or German, Polish) we say Merry Christmas". The angels have ceramic clappers inside and cord hangers. The Polish angel has a couple of scratches to the red paint of her dress, otherwise they're in good condition.
I'm including an extra bonus Italian angel. From the front she displays fine but there's a chip to the lower back edge of her dress. It's been sealed with clear nail polish to prevent further damage.
