These vintage Christmas decorations date to the 1920’s and 30’s. Only one is marked “Japan,” but I suspect that that’s where all of them were made. A combination of cardboard, composition, and cotton batting, they have that old-fashioned charm that just can’t be duplicated. These decorations have been a part of our collection for quite a while, but Jim found a new place to display them this year. Can you guess where that might be? If you’re a regular reader of “Collectorgene,” you might be able to tell. The “rocky mountains” that these little guys are perched on were featured in an article several months ago.
The following pictures tell the whole story.
Yes, indeed, those whale bone fossils that we now display in our living room window have become a part of this year’s holiday display. Collecting to the extent that we do forces us to be creative when it comes to squeezing one more thing in!
