I've slowed down my search over the years, but occasionally a new piece will make it's way into the collection. This past weekend I found a little celluloid and chenille elf riding in a golden sleigh. Without a doubt, he needed to come home with me.
So without further ado, I would like to say Seasons Greetings! by sharing pictures of a few of my vintage holiday treasures.
Ornamental molded candles from the 1960s
This is one of my few reproduction pieces. There is a rotating multi colored light inside, very retro. You can see my little 1950s porcelain choir boy caroling away on the right.
Dainty and demure, this 1960s, alabaster porcelain deer makes a beautiful table piece.
Here he is! My latest acquisition. A celluloid and chenille elf with his golden sleigh.

I love old blown mercury glass bulbs, especially with baby or childrens themes. 1940s blue mercury glass ornament with ducky (top right)
From my box of card ornaments, this jolly snowman. I can never decide which of the cards I like best, they are all so sweet. To his right a 1960s spun cotton Santa.
A 1940s porcelain snowman bell.
A 1950s Florida souvenir ornament, cute little orange person. Behind that, another one of my card ornaments.
This one is from the 1980s, wall plaque, reproduction of a Victorian Christmas card.
And last but not least, a sleigh full of 1960s Made in Japan, cloth elves and the big man himself, Santa!
Happiest Holidays to you all.
