This adorable little celluloid boy dressed in a striped bathing suit is a vintage Christmas tree ornament. This toy was also made as a Christmas tree light bulb as shown in the Schiffer reference book; Holidays Toys and Decorations but this one is just the ornament. The child has his toes clinched around a celluloid board. His arms are raised and his hands hold the string that runs through the board and makes a loop by which he can hang from a tree branch. It is marked Made in Japan on the back along with a logo.
It measures about 4". The total length when hanging is about 5 5/8". The celluloid figure is in good condition with good color and no damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
