Vintage Retro Modern German Paper Mache Glitter Candy Container - Flying Elf or Pixie
From Germany and dating to the 1950s or so, may I offer this candy container in the form of a pixie or elf or even dwarf! Made of cardboard and paper mache, the head can be removed from the body to show where to put holiday treats; the head can also be put into different positions as you can see by the photos. The little guy has terrifically chubby cheeks, carries a silver glass ball, has a colorful paper mache face and is covered in dark glitter.
Condition: Excellent with only a small speck of the applied eye missing at the corner and a little bit of mica glitter missing from the body - a natural happenstance that comes with old age.
Hallmarks: None that I can find but German made it is.
Size: 4-1/2" high x 3-1/4" wide.
Final Comments: Very hard to find in such good condition!
Buying more than ONE of my ornaments/items. Then please, just place the order and give me time to amend the postage/insurance to the right amount before paying.
