Vintage circa 1950s Riding Stick Horse. This horse has a hard plastic head measuring about 9 1/4 inches long x 4 1/2 inches wide. Horse head is attached to the original wooden stick which measures about 25 3/4 inches long.
Horse head is a caramel color with blue accents. Most of the eye color has faded. Horse mouth is jointed and closes when the strings are pulled.
Condition is very good with coloring on teeth and eyes faded. Original strings are not complete. These have broken off mostly over the years with only 6 or 7 inches of string remaining on each side of the mouth. There is also a 1/2 inch crack near where the teeth start on the right side of his mouth. This crack is visible in the first photo, about an inch in front of where the string is attached.
Over all a really nice vintage piece which includes the stick.
Vintage Yuletide Tie ons, Tree Trims, Party Decorations Christmas Tree Ornaments No. 6280. Made in Japan.
These decorations are new in unopened package. Five bearded elves, gnomes, or wisemen (?) with a white triangular body with gold trim and red buttons. Each is wearing a tall gold colored hat.
In the original unopened packaging so it's hard to see for sure. But it appears they each have a pipe cleaner on the back to be twisted around a tree branch for hanging. This could also just be what is used to hold them in place in the packaging. It also looks like there may be gold colored string attached to each hat for tying on a tree branch. Surprisingly little information on the package.
Each elf measures about 3 1/4 inches tall from the tip of his hat to the base. and about 2 inches wide with their beard fluffed out.
Condition is very good.
Sweet little Christmas ornaments!
