A pair 1950s or earlier 3-dimensional cardboard mica stable, manger, or house Christmas ornaments with standing plastic figures in front of the openings. One has an angel appearing to kiss a fawn or little reindeer, the other has Santa Claus in his reindeer driven sleigh. The stables have pitched roofs and cardboard pine trees at the front, red cellophane windows on the back walls. They're encrusted with mica glitter and measure about 2-1/2 inches wide by 1-3/4" high at the centers. There is slight wear to the mica on the rooftops and each has a thin slit to one of the red cellophane windows, possibly a manufacturing flaw. One ornament has a foil label reading "Pat. Hand Made Japan".
