Post WW2 Japanese 15V Snowman Tree Bulb/ Untested - image 1 of 9

This Snowman Christmas Tree Light String Bulb is marked “S K 15 V JAPAN” on the metal screw cap and I could not get it to clearly photograph but it can be seen with a jewelers loop. Originally belonging to my late husband's family, bought when the USA was trying to help Japan rebuild after the 2nd World War.

Not sure why he has a stick in his hand, but I know sometimes they got our aesthetics wrong when trying to make things we would like. (I will never forget seeing Santa on a Cross one day in a 5 and 10) This snow man even has feet!

His body is made of white milk glass, and his hat face and stick were hand painted on. Measuring 2 2/8 inches long, (just the snowman) add in the bulb screw it is 2 6/8 inches long. I can not test him as the string that he worked on had to be permanently retired about 10 years ago and I can only tell you he may or may not work but he did back then. He will not fit into a 7W light bulb base, so modern strings will not be compatible. Still he is fun to have is you like to decorate villages and things this time of year.

Condition is Excellent Vintage. He has minor paint loss on his stick (it came up darker than it is in the photos) and a slight bit to his red hat also.(that came up more of an orange color than red) He also looks more like he needs to be cleaned in the photo's than he actually does in your hand, but I will let his cleaning up to you should you choose to. I take close up high resolution photographs and it makes even the smallest thing look large.
