WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL VERY EARLY AMERICAN MADE, VINTAGE CARDBOARD, PAPER MICA GLITTER COVERED CHRISTMAS VILLAGE LOG CABIN PUTZ HOUSE. Perfect for your your Christmas Village, Nativity, Putz or Model Railroad, under the tree. Vintage 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. This house is an early example of an American made piece, most likely prior to WWII. Beautiful detailing and coloration. Unusual log cabin design. Heavy mica snow covers the front, base, roof and sides of the log cabin house, for a beautiful, wintry snow effect. Large lichen tree is secure to the base. The village putz house is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Litho paper door and windows are there and intact, a few splits to the door, due to age. 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 4 5/8" wide, 4" tall, and 3 1/4" deep. It is ink stamped on the bottom, "MADE IN U.S.A.".

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