Made by Commodore of Japan in the 1950s, this darling set of four ceramic angel candlesticks each holds a red letter spelling out NOEL. There are two girl and two boy angels, about 3-1/2 inches high. They take small candles, roughly birthday candle size. A partial box with 5 of the original candles is included - 3 unused, 2 have been lit.
The angels come in their original decorated box bottom. There is a plain replacement lid which fits the box but is not original. The original lid would have said "Noel Angels, Commodore Japan, 1 Set C-1017". The angel holding the letter O has been skillfully repaired at the neck. The others are in excellent condition with no damage or paint loss.
