Vintage Ceramic Bell With Santa Claus Do Not Open Gift Message 1930s Or 1940s:
Vintage Santa Claus Greeting Bell for Present
Says "Do Not Open Until Christmas"
Probably 1930s or 1940s -could be earlier or a bit later
The inside of the bellappears to have gold paint on part of it. It is not clear whether it originally had gold paint and the bell ringer has worn it off over time.
The opening was originally trimmed in gold, and part of that remains while some is missing.
The ringer wasoriginally gold, and some has worn off with use over the years.
The bell is about 1 5/8" top to bottom, 1 5/8" side to side at the opening, 1 3/16" front to back at the opening.
The string appears to be a mix of original gift twine and a later bit of gift twine.
I have NOT attempted to clean this as I did not want to risk damagingthe patina.
