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, larger scale to this house. 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 rippled pitched roof design, tall chimney, little side shed attached to the main house. Heavy coconut mica snow glitter covers the front, base, roof and sides of the house, for a beautiful, wintry snow effect. Two large lichen trees are secure to the base. The large rustic village putz house, is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Cellophane door and 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, 3 7/8" tall, and 3 1/4" deep. It is ink stamped on the bottom, "MADE IN JAPAN".

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