WONDERFUL VINTAGE PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS PIXIE ELF FIGURINE. What a great old Christmas Holiday decoration. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday decorative Angel, pixie figurines, and whimsical figural salt and pepper shakers 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! Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Beautiful detailing into the cast porcelain mold. Santa's pixie elf is in very good vintage condition, free of cracks, a tiny nick on the front rim of his hat, as shown in the photos. He measures about 4 1/2" long. Ink stamp on the bottom, "JAPAN".
