Vintage BEISTLE Christmas Angel - Art Tissue Holiday Decoration - Made in USA
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Over the years (about 30 or so) I have been collecting Vintage Christmas – all items, all designs, all ages. Of course, having grown up in the 60s I am most partial to that era. Well, it’s time to clear a little room in my condo and those items I do not think I am going to use, I am going to put up on Ruby Lane. Now since a lot of the items I have are in the “low range” area, and the minimum amount I can sell an item for on RL is $5, some of those $5 items will have a MAKE OFFER button showing BUT, I will state the price I want right for the item at the beginning of the listing so there’s no mistake about the offer. So up now……
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: From BEISTLE, probably one of the best known names in paper holiday decorations, comes this "charming art tissue holiday decoration" - a Christmas Angel. Still in its original plastic packaging, the decoration appears to have never been used. How can I tell? Because it would be too hard to open it - everything is still quite crisp to the touch (you know, as in NEW).
CONDITION: Because the packaging is soft plastic there's a bit of a bend in the halo. Also, there is some upturned tissue at the bottom of the bell shaped honeycomb bottom.
NOTE: Everything always looks better in person than in my scans/photos.
SIZE: Is about 10" high with a single width of of about 6". I guess once it is opened, width would be about 12" (due to the span of the wings).
FINAL COMMENTS: Just adorable and five will get you ten, there's not too many of THESE around!
FURTHER NOTE: I can put an awful lot of paper into one envelope so be assured, if you buy more than 1 piece of paper, I will adjust the postage once I receive the purchase order. And please, don’t pay until I HAVE revised the postage. Thanks.
