Wonderful vintage/antique lot of spun cotton ornaments include 2 Santa head picks (one on a pipe cleaner and one with wire), 1 snowman head on a wire pick that is marked Japan on the back, 4 miniature mushrooms on wire picks, and 3 glittered birds of which two include a top hook for hanging, all 3 have wire picks attached to their feet.
The miniature mushrooms measure about 3/4 in length with an approximate 5/8" cap. One mushroom does have a dried dot of what appears to be hot glue.
The snowman head measures about 1 1/4" tall with a hat brim diameter also of 1 1/4". The brim of the hat appears to be made of brown paper board.
The Santa head without the blue eyes is about 1 1/4" in length and has a pipe cleaner hat brim, mustache and beard. He does have missing red paint on his nose and age marks on the back of head and possibly dried glue near the bottom of the beard. There is a remnant of a makers mark on the back of the head - most likely Japan.
The Santa head with blue eyes is in very good shape for his age and features a pipe cleaner pick, hat brim, and "pom pom" with a wool or cotton beard. He is unmarked and measures about 1 3/4" inclusive of his long beard.
The birds measure approximately 8" long inclusive of their long tails. 1 bird is in excellent vintage condition, 1 bird is in very good condition but missing one of his eyes, the third bird has signs of age and missing his beak but includes both eyes! I would use an eye from this bird for the other bird so as to have a nice set of 2! All three birds have red foil/paper bands around one leg indicating they were made in Japan.
With a little touch up/restoration on a few of the ornaments, the set would be great on a small vintage tree/feather tree or to use in a vintage craft project. They are very sweet and reminiscent of a wonderful time in history.
