Welcome to Creating Christmas!
I am starting the party off today with my collection of vintage Christmas figurines!
This grouping is situated on top of my vintage washstand along with an old vanity mirror, a vintage Christmas tea towel, a mismatched snow village, and a couple of ceramic trees, one with a tea light at the rear.
(My post about the thrifted snow village is here.)
Starting on the left is a Holt Howard Santa on a sleigh, with a Napco Mrs. Santa shaker, and a vintage unmarked deer figurine is in front. This is a "married" grouping. Mrs. Santa is missing the other shaker, the Holt Howard Santa is missing his original large white reindeer, and I'm not sure if the deer was originally part of a set or not. I'm not all matchy-matchy, so this works for me! These figurines are from the 1950's and 1960's.
These adorable little angels are all made by Lefton in the 1950's. These two sets are my favorites. The little deer is also vintage. Maker unknown, but likely made in Japan.
These two little Lefton angels have their vintage pug dog figurine out caroling this evening. (Every home needs a pug!)
Moving over to my desk's hutch, I have two "made in Japan" Santa candle holders that I have displayed with bottle brush trees. The Waechtersbach holly bowl is filled with snowballs made last year, and posted to my blog.
The taller figurine with the packages was my Mom's, and I remember it from my childhood. More mismatched snow village houses that I painted white in 2011, a little unmarked angel with a tree, and another pug dog.
This is the right side of the desk hutch.
This little pair of angel figurines is marked Japan, and the gold candle salt and pepper shakers are unmarked with cork stoppers.
This angel is another of my favorites. I love her eyelashes. Maker unknown.
The center shelf of my desk hutch.
These little charmers on the left side of the hutch are salt and pepper shakers. The little angels in front are marked Japan, and the other set is made by Napco in 1956.
The set of deer are unmarked, and the sleigh is from the early 80's made by Lefton.
This hutch works well for displaying my Christmas figurines.
This Santa figural planter I purchased thrifting last winter is also unmarked.
This little lady is the only Christmas head vase in my collection.
This Santa and his reindeer were mine as a child. They are made by Columbia Toys, copyright 1959. Plastic faced stuffed animals were popular when I was a child.
If you are a baby boomer, you might remember some of these vintage Christmas pieces!
