Here are 12 miniature porcelain bell Christmas tree ornaments, made in Japan in the 1950s.
Nine are just a little over an inch high, squared and dome shapes. Each is decorated with a small holiday decal such as Santa Claus, a candle, or bells and holly along with the greeting Merry Christmas in tiny gold print.
The other three bells are a bit larger, from 1-1/2 to about 2 inches high. Two have candle decals with Christmas greetings in gold script, one has a big red poinsettia. The bells all have their ceramic bead clappers and gold cord or ribbon hangers at the tops. No chips or damage.
