Wooden Bird Vintage Christmas Ornaments Hand Painted Folk Art Lot of 6
A lot of 6 old fashioned wooden bird vintage Christmas ornaments, hand painted in a folk art motif, finished with clips on their underbellies for clipping to the tree.
Made in Taiwan Republic of China and likely dating to the 1950s, three of the birds have a red body and three in white, with the red birds finished in white, black and yellow and the white birds decorated with red, black, yellow, and green.
These are made with a lightweight wood, and appear to have slots cut into the body into which the wings and tails are inserted, with the hand painted finish then applied. Given their age and use, most have some degree of cracking in the paint at the seams, with some other minor paint loss.
Measuring 2-3/4 inch long and 1-3/8 inch high, excluding the clip, four of the six still retain their gold Made in Taiwan Republic of China label.
