Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: Japan Manufacturer: Mid Century Japan Import
Twelve miniature porcelain bell Christmas ornaments, mounted on their original heavy gold foil covered dimestore cardboard display. The bells were made in Japan in the 1950s. They're just over one inch high, half in a rounded dome traditional bell shape, half in a 4-sided angular taped shape. The fronts are decorated with decals of Santa Claus, bells, or candles, all with a Merry Christmas greeting printed in gold. Excellent condition with no chips or damage, all have their metallic gold cord hangers and ceramic bead clappers inside. I didn't notice how dusty they were until I saw the photos - they should clean right up with a damp cloth.
