Three groups of vintage millinery flowers and fruit; strawberries and Grape Hyacinth made in Japan.
1. One bunch of beautiful red strawberries. Berries are 5/8 inch across. They are about 4 inches long on a fabric wrapped wire. They are hollow, with lots of fine texture. I think they may be a papier mache'. Each has tiny leaves where the berry meets the stem.
2. There are two bunches of brilliant purple Grape Hyacinths. The flowers are 3/4 inch tall. Each stem is about 4 inches long. Each bunch has 12 stems. A total of 24 blossoms. I believe they are also made of papier mache'.
The "leaves" at the base of each flower are made from finely diced straw painted green. They are firmly glued to the flowers.
Condition is ABOVE excellent. One strawberry has a teeny, tiny spot where there is color loss.
The paper label that was wrapped around one of the bunches has fallen off and is torn in half.
BRILLIANT colors! Ideal to decorate a vintage hat. So sweet to lay in a garden basket for a doll. All in above excellent condition.
