What a wonderful original Scottie Christmas Tree, decorated with 5 perky black Scottie Dogs, each intricately hand carved and hand painted with red collars and white eyes! Notice the bone at the base of the tree also carved of black bakelite! The red bow at the top of the tree measures 1 inch tall and 3/4 inch wide. This tree was hand carved out of end of the day bakelite which you can see in the photos that the front of the tree is perhaps a mossy green graduating to a brighter green, then the back is another shade of more mellow green. Very rare indeed. It is signed in script on the back by J. L. Foltz. J. L. Foltz was a modern artist who is well-known for carving beautiful and unique jewelry from old bakelite and then painted on, never to be duplicated. Many of his works are illustrated in several jewelry publications. Leigh Lesher's "Collecting Art Plastic Jewelry" ID & Price Guide has several of his creations featured. He was a great talent!
