Circa: 1950s Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Mid Century Japan Import
This cute 1950s Japan Christmas ornament was once an angel, but she's lost her wings and has been demoted to a choir girl. She has yellow real feather hair and a sweet hand painted composition or paper maché face. Her gown is made of pink feathers , the front decorated with two flocked paper white flowers with tiny lacquered bead centers. She holds a gold foil scrap "Noel" song book in her white chenille arms. A paper Made in Japan label is inside the paper cone of her dress - it's open so you can put her on top of the Christmas tree.
The angel displays nicely but she has a couple of minor issues in addition to missing wings. The fine yellow hair feathers are sparse at the back of her head, and some of the pink dress feathers are worn or shedding. She's about 4-1/2 inches high.
