These very cute 1950s Lefton ceramic angel figures are designed to slip over taper candles. They're called candle climbers or huggers, after the way their arms encircle the candle. Of course they can also be used as regular figurines. The sitting angels have short pixie type hair adorned with halos of holly and red berries. They wear red dresses trimmed in white Santa type fur and have bare feet. One has wide open eyes, the other has her eyes closed, showing her long lashes.
The angels have no damage and no paint loss or scratches. All those white spots in the photos are from reflections and glare. Each has her original foil label reading Lefton Trademark Exclusives Japan.
