WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE CARDBOARD, PAPER MICA GLITTER COVERED CHRISTMAS VILLAGE PUTZ HOUSE. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Nativity, Putz or Model Railroad, under the tree. Nice, very early design, most likely American made, pre-war. Christmas village decorations such as these, were sold in the local five and dime stores, from small towns to large metro cities after WWII, when exports from Japan to the U.S. began again. This was the "Golden Age" of Christmas Holiday decoration, 1940's-1960's. Beautiful detailing and coloration. Unusual double pitched roof design. Mica snow glitter covers the roof and base of the house, for a beautiful, wintry snow effect. Small lichen shrubs, secure to the base. The village putz house is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Paper litho door and windows are there and intact. It has the original hole in the back to insert a small to medium size light, which is what we have done, to show the lovely glow of Christmases past thru the windows and door. The house measures about 5" wide, 3 1/2" tall, and 3" deep. It is unmarked, but the base style and paper litho windows, reflect that of an American design.

What a great addition for your CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY collection!!!!
