These two vintage late 50s German Wax Tree Ornaments were sent from Germany in 1957 or 1958 when my late husbands uncle was stationed in Germany after the war.
One is in the shape of a red cheeked woman that looks to be holding a string of garland under her round smiling face. She is dressed in traditional German Christmas garb with what looks to be decorated in green pine boughs and gold colored berries. She is done in a red brick colored wax and sports a brown face. Her face is brown because she is fashioned after a traditional seasonal cookie made in Germany for the holidays each year.
Measuring 2 6/8” long and 2” wide at her widest point, she also has a golden hanging cord inserted into the top of her hat for hanging.
I am also including this second wax ornament that depicts three children bundled against the cold, song books in hand singing “Stille Nacht - Heilige Nacht” which translates to the familiar “Silent Night - Holey Night” under what I am sure was meant to be the Star of Bethlehem showering its light down on all mankind.
Measuring 2 5/8” long and 2 5/8” wide it also has a golden hanging cord inserted at top for placing on your tree, and is painted in red, blue, silver and gold paint.
Condition is excellent vintage considering they are wax and about 60 years old as they have been carefully taken care of all these years. I take high resolution close up photo's so you can see everything you are getting, however sometimes it isn't a blessing. As with the middle child in this ornament, close up photography makes her look slightly frightening, however she is much better looking in person when on the tree.
I have passed many wonderful Christmas items on to my children, but they are not interested in wax ornaments so I am passing these on to you. It is now time to find them a new forever home so that they can continue to bring tidings of comfort and joy to others as they have our family over the years.
