Circa: 1950s Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Holt Howard
Although these adorable tiny porcelain Christmas ornaments are only marked Japan, they were made by Holt Howard in the 1950s. They came in a box of six or eight. Here are five, each different: Santa, angel, elf face, pixie style angel, and Rudolph the reindeer. The ornaments are only 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 inches high. Factory mass produced to sell cheaply, they have some minor manufacturing paint flaws but no chips or damage. There is some minor paint wear, mainly to the Santa's hands and the elf head's red nose.
