Old Porcelain Angel Figurine - January Birthday with Skis
This is vintage birthday angel, for those born in January, is a little unusual. To begin with she appears to be older with a more shapely figure than many of the birthday angels. Her white gown is trimmed with gold and she’s wearing elbow length gloves that are also trimmed with gold. At her waist is a pale blue ribbon. Although she looks like a beauty pageant contestant she is holding a pair of skis tied with a red ribbon rather than a bouquet of roses. Her halo is shiny gold and she has gold accents on the front of her wings. Across the front is the month; January”. On the bottom it is stamped “Japan” and I would assume she is from the 1940’s or 1950’s.
She measures about 4 7/8” tall and is in good condition with minimal wear. There is a flake on one finger of her left hand. It is slightly discolored but appears to be glazed over. I have shown two close-up views in the photographs.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
