These four cute porcelain ceramic Santa Claus heads are Christmas bell ornaments, made in Japan in the 1950s. They're 2-1/4 inches high, each with a ceramic bead clapper on a string inside to make them ring. The bells have no chips or damage, though like most Japan made dimestore items of this era, they have the occasional minor paint flaw, such as the red specks on one Santa's beard. All those white spots in my photos are from glare and reflections, the paint is good.
