WONDERFUL VINTAGE JOSEF ORIGINALS PORCELAIN, FIFTH BIRTHDAY ANGEL GIRL FIGURINE. What a lovely little birthday angel girl. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday and decorative Angel and pixie figurines during the 1940's-1960's, along with Lefton, Inarco, Napco and other factories of that time. It was considered the "Golden Age" of ceramic and porcelain Holiday decorations, for pieces such as these! Beautiful detailing into the porcelain mold, the raised flower design on the number , the ABC book she holds in her hand. Gold accents to her dress, her wings, and the #5. Our birthday angel girl is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. She measures about 3 3/4" tall. She is marked with the original paper tag on the side, "JOSEF ORIGINALS JAPAN", and is marked on the bottom into the mold, "JOSEF ORIGINALS".
