2 Wax Angels, German Koestel Tree Topper, Vintage Christmas Ornament, Decor
2 Vintage Koestel Christmas Angel Ornaments or Tree Toppers that were made in ern Germany in the 1950s. These charming angels could be used as a tree topper for a small tree or displayed standing on their own. Each has a wax head and cone shaped lightweight cardboard bodies that are ivory colored with tiny gold polka dots. Each has gold foil leaf wings, ivory colored pipe cleaner arms and antique gold painted hair. One has a braid trim gold crown and is carrying a metallic Christmas tree. The other is carrying a metallic gold banner in one hand and an antique looking lantern with candle inside in the other hand.
The interior of their skirts have the original paper labels that read "MADE IN ERN GERMANY." To display them as ornaments, a hanger could be attached to the back of back of their necks.
Both are in excellent condition; however, the one with the lantern is missing a bit of gold paint on her hair. Otherwise, she is in lovely condition and both look "angelic" on display.
