This is a super handbag by Dorset Rex! Has black (hard plastic) handle and lid and the woven metal is gold and black. Purse has a hook and chain closure, measures 8 5/8” long x 5 5/8” wide (lid measurements) and is 3 ¾” tall. In wonderful condition – clean inside and out – still has Dorset Rex label. Top has minor “use” rubs that are not detrimental to this excellent handbag.
This is an adorable bank! Made by American Bisque, bank is shaped like a snowman’s head and he’s nattily attired with top hat, earmuffs, and a bow tie. Measures 6 7/8” tall (at tallest) and is in wonderful condition – feels like he has had minor color touch-ups on his hat and he doesn’t have a stopper – that’s it! Very nice collectible.
Beautiful colors and attention to detail on this Christmas 1977 decorative plate! Made by Crown Staffordshire of Staffordshire, England, this is the 6th plate in a limited edition series and is titled “Cock O’ the North”. Plate measures 7 ½” diameter, is mint condition, and has the artist’s name (J.A. Bailey) on front. Very pretty!
This is a cute, older Santa bank! Measures 5 ¾” tall and has a red with gold “made in Japan’ sticker on bottom. He is papier-mache’ and is in very good condition with some flecks of missing color (could be easily touched up). Nice item!
What a cute shaker set! Made by Kelvin’s Exclusives of Japan, shakers are shaped like Santa’s boots. Measure 2 ¾” tall and are in excellent condition! Pretty set and a nice addition to a shaker or Christmas collection.
This is an unusual and different Holt Howard Christmas item! It’s a girl holding some packages and the unusual part is the size of her head – it’s large and oversized for her body. She’s in very good condition with a couple flecks of missing red color. Apparently had tape on bottom to prevent scratching furniture and there is old glue residue – I didn’t scrub on it because I didn’t want to remove the remnants of the black and gold Holt Howard foil label. Cute item!

Aren’t these vintage mini ornaments adorable? There are 14 ornaments in this listing and they are in the original box! Box states “Extra Fancy Hand Decorated Very Tiny Xmas Ornaments” and “Shackman 16, NY, Made in Japan”. There are 11 round shape with little “drops” on ends, there are 2 bell shaped, and 1 round reflector. Wonderful condition with minor color loss. Super collectible!
Neat ornaments and difficult to find in wonderful condition – 3 small wax boot ornaments! These were originally filled with tiny candy bits. Super collectibles, there are 2 red boots and 1 green!
Purchased at an estate sale, I have no idea of the age of these little guys! Their arms and legs are peppermint sticks covered with netting, heads are Styrofoam balls, collars are green netting, and they have green felt hats! They have tape that has yellowed from age – could be easily replaced with new – and they have a pipe cleaner on backs that allow them to be hung on a tree, a mantel, or used as package decorations! Neat retro items.
This is a super corsage! It has a silver color leaf, 2 sprigs of brush type greenery, a small pinecone with glass beads, 2 candy canes (the red cellophane stripes have slipped to the bottom), and a Santa head that appears to be spun cotton (he still has paper made in Japan label). Wonderful as a corsage, a package decoration, or a display piece – I’ve seen small trees decorated with an assortment of corsages – beautiful!
This absolutely beautiful angel tree topper has been in my Christmas collection for the last 10+ years! Her skirt is white feathers, she has blue wings, blonde hair, and blue open and close eyes. Topper measures 13” tall and she’s in wonderful condition. I kept her in the box she was in when I purchased (I don’t know if it’s original or not) and I noticed that the feathers on back of her skirt have flattened from storage...
This is a pretty unmarked McCoy candleholder with unusual color! Candleholder is chamber stick style (with finger hold), base measures 5 ¼” diameter, and it’s 3” tall (at tallest). Mint condition!

Cute little unmarked McCoy duck planter! Little duck measures 3 5/8” tall (at tallest) and he’s an unusual color. He’s a pretty green color but his front half has a darker underlying color (extends back to his wings) while the rest is green. He has a couple production rubs (non-color/glaze) on one wing and one on his chest – they are production and of no consequence! The only “use” evidence I could find is a 1/16” glaze ding on rim edge – that’s it! Neat planter.
This is a beautiful older unmarked McCoy vase! Made in the 1940’s, it measures 9 1/8” tall and is a rich aqua color with shiny glaze. This is a heavy vase, is a somewhat difficult find, and as with the other aqua vases we have just listed, it’s from my collection. It is not mint condition but the imperfections weren’t serious enough to prevent my purchasing it years ago! It has a ¾” super tight hairline at rim – it’s fine as a pencil mark or craze mark...

The color and design of this McCoy planter (small jardinière) are simply outstanding! Made in the 1940’s, planter measures 3 ¼” tall, 3 5/8” diameter, is a pale pink color and marked on bottom: Made in USA, McCoy...
Mint condition Boy Scout mug by McCoy! This one commemorates the “Buffalo Trace Council”, has gold trim, measures 3 1/8” tall and has McCoy’s pitcher mark on bottom. Extra nice!
The larger Pyrex covered casseroles are difficult to find – especially in this excellent condition! This listing has a 2 ½ quart casserole in the Garland pattern. Bowl is blue with white garland, lid is white with blue garland – lovely – and both pieces are in excellent condition!
Another lovely Kitchen Prayer Lady item! The pink on this spoon storage is darker and she has dark, almost black, color hair. Excellent condition -- the only evidence of “use” is a teeny missing fleck of color on back of skirt at a spoon slot – that’s it! Very pretty item.
