VINTAGE PAIR OF LARGE CELLULOID REINDEER
THIS PAIR OF REINDEER ARE MADE OF A VERY LIGHTWEIGHT CELLULOID PLASTIC. THEY ARE WHITE WITH PINK FACIAL FEATURES. THEY ARE HOLLOW, YET STURDY AND STAND PERFECTLY ON THEIR OWN THEY ARE MOLDED AND HAVE SEAMS ON THE BELLY-SIDE.
THEY ARE MARKED WITH A RAISED LETTERING ON THE BELLIES- "MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN". THEY APPEAR TO BE FROM THE LATE 1940-EARLY 1950'S. THEY ARE IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITHOUT DAMAGE. THERE ARE A FEW TINY YELLOWED AGE SPOTS, BUT I HAVEN'T TRIED TO CLEAN THEM-SO THEY MAY COME OFF. THERE IS A TINY BIT OF CLEAR GLUE NEAR EACH OF THE ANTLER JOINTS. THESE WERE INSERTED INTO THE HEADS, ARE SECURE, AND THE GLUE IS LIKELY ORIGINAL, THOUGH HASN'T YELLOWED.
I'M SURE THESE WERE PART OF A VINTAGE HOLIDAY DISPLAY- EACH BIG REINDEER MEASURES 8" LONG X 7" HIGH X 2.5" WIDE. A VERY NICE HARD-TO-FIND PAIR.
