WONDERFUL VINTAGE PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY CANDY CANE GIRL BELL. What a beautiful old Christmas Holiday decoration. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday, Angel and pixie bells and 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....the "Golden Age" of Christmas ceramics. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Beautiful detailing into the porcelain mold. Our little candy cane girl holds a gold accented horn in her hands. Our little musician girl bell is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. She measures about 3 1/2" tall. She has the original black and gold paper tag, "A FINE QUALITY JAPAN". For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site. What a great addition for your Christmas Holiday Bell collection!!!!!
