A pair of attractive, very sweet vintage painted hard plastic Christmas ornaments from Germany with celestial angels. One rides a shooting star, the other sits in the curve of a quarter moon atop a sugar glittered cloud.
The shooting star ornament is 2-3/4 inches long. The chubby angel wears a pink gown and cap. Germany is embossed along her arm at the back.
The moon angel ornament is 2 inches high. Made In Germany West is marked on the back. This one is from the 1950s or 1960s, the other may be newer (post 1988 reunified Germany) or, less likely, pre-war 1930s. Both are in very good vintage condition.
