WONDERFUL VINTAGE LEFTON PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY ANGEL GIRL BELL. What a beautiful old Christmas Holiday decoration. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday, Angel and pixie figurines during this time period. Christmas ceramic and porcelain figurines 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 began and trade was established again with the U.S. That would have been late 1940's, into the 1950's....a golden age of Christmas ceramics. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Beautiful detailing into the porcelain mold. Our little angel girl holds a hymn book in one of her hands, and a comic book behind her back in her other hand! Gold accents to the trim of her dress, the hymn book, her bow tie, her halo, her wings. The angel bell is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, a few of the gold ripples are missing from the trim, as shown in the photos. She still shows very well, just so you are aware of this. Bell ringer is intact. She measures about 4" tall. She has the original red and gold paper tag, "LEFTON'S EXCLUSIVES JAPAN", and is ink stamped, "GEO.Z LEFTON".
