WONDERFUL VINTAGE LEFTON PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS SHOPPER ANGEL GIRL BELL. What a beautiful old Christmas Holiday decoration. Rich, vibrant hand painted coloration. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday, Angel and pixie figurines during this time period. Holiday ceramic and porcelain figurines and bells 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 and Holiday decorations. Beautiful detailing into the porcelain mold. Our little shopper angel girl holds a large, gaily wrapped package in her hand. Heavy spaghetti trim adorns her coat, collar, cuffs and hat. Gold accents to the trim, the package, her wings. The angel bell is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. Bell ringer is intact. She measures about 4" tall. She has the original red and gold paper tag, "LEFTON'S EXCLUSIVES 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 Lefton, Christmas Holiday collection!!!!!
