WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VINTAGE CARDBOARD, PAPER MICA GLITTER COVERED CHRISTMAS VILLAGE PUTZ HOUSE. What a great large scale old house!! Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Nativity, Putz or Model Railroad, under the tree. 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 pitched roof, tall two story tower to one side of the house, covered side entry design. Heavy coconut mica snow glitter covers the front, base, roof and sides of the house, for a beautiful, snow effect. Not sure if there were trees ever attached to the base. The village putz house is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Paper litho door and cellophane windows are there. 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 large scale house measures about 6" wide, 4 1/4" tall, and 3 5/8" deep. It is not ink stamped on the bottom, but would have been "MADE IN JAPAN".

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