Product Description

WONDERFUL OLD FASHIONED VINTAGE STYLED, GERMAN CHRISTMAS DIE CUT PAPER, ANGEL BEARS SCENE ADVENT CALENDAR. What a lovely Christmas Holiday tradition! The advent calendar dates back to the 1800's in Germany. Children would start the Christmas count down by opening the little windows from December 1st. thru the 24th, to reveal a picture, a verse a Holiday treat. The classic design and printing style continues today. Rich, vibrant coloration. Beautiful detailing to the whimsical styled Angel bears, the gaily decorated tree, the blazing candles, the boxes of ornaments. Twenty four little die cut doors, ready to be opened for the count down to Christmas. Silver glitter accents the scene. The Advent calendar is in very good condition, free of rips or tears, in the original cellophane packaging, as shown in the photo. It measures about 11 3/4" X 8 1/4". Purchased in Germany at a local Kristkindl market, it is marked on the bottom, "MADE IN GERMANY KORSCH VERLAG 10362".
