Today I'm offering for sale three wonderful "German Fluted Pressed Cardboard Christmas Bowls" marked Made in Germany and made between the 1920's and 1940's. The artwork found on all three Christmas Bowls is quite stunning and definitely scream “Merry Christmas”!! Listed below is each bowl and its condition:

This beautiful Christmas Bowl features a Christmas Scene in the center of the bowl showing an early Father Christmas(Santa Claus) handing out gifts to a youngster who is kneeling and praying in front of a Christmas tree. Around the inside edge are drawings showing a Christmas Tree with Lit Candles, a Little Girl in a German style dress picking flowers, a Santa Helper holding a glass, a Mom and Dad, a Bird, a Lit Candle on a tree branch, a Monkey, a Pony, another Santa Helper, and a Little Girl dressed as an Angel. *Condition: The top of this Christmas Bowl is in Good+ Condition; The inside area shows normal creases in the cardboard, light surface wear, and edge wear.

3. The third beautiful Christmas Bowl is my favorite. It is absolutely the prettiest little Angel Christmas Scene I've ever seen. On the inside it shows six Angels very busy baking all kinds of cookies and breads for Christmas Day. One is rolling out cookie dough, one is mixing cookie batter, one is making cut-out cookies, one is shaking sugar on cut-outs, one is making homemade bread, and the last one is putting cookies into an oven.
On the inside edge it shows a little Angel painting a few Christmas houses, one decorating a small Christmas tree, one making doll clothing, one playing with a toy train, one playing with a doll in a cradle, and the last two show an Angel reading a book while the other plays a flute. Each Angel is shown wearing a different sweet colorful dress or gown. *Condition: The inside area shows normal creases in the cardboard, minor surface wear and edge wear.

All three measure the same: 11 1/2" in diameter at the widest point across the top; 6 3/4" in diameter across the bottom; and about 2” deep. On the bottom of each piece it reads “Made in Germany” which is stamped in black ink.
If your parents or grandparents were German these beautifully pressed fluted Christmas Bowls were probably brought out at Christmas to hold some yummy homemade Xmas goodies. As they found their way to America and into stores everyone got a chance to enjoy these heartwarming pieces of Vintage Christmas Memorabilia. A wonderful gift to give before Christmas to a close friend or member of your family that loves to decorate their homes at Christmas.
