*Be On Look Out

I am asking for your help in locating something. Something I've not been able to Google, Etsy or Ebay.

Below is a Christmas decoration that my grandmother had, and my brother and his family have now. It is a ceramic bird that clips on the Christmas tree. The only mark is JAPAN. Each is about 4" in length. The second and third pictures I snapped with no intention of sharing - they were to help me recall coloring, etc., so please excuse them. But I thought two or more sets of eyes are way better than one and I would share my hunt with you, just in case you come across some.

So if you spot any of these while you are out thrifting, antiquing or in your great aunt Esmeralda's attic, let me know. I will at least make you an offer.


  1. the blue one, I think i have seen, are they about 3 inches long with a squeeze clip on the bottom? and they are hollow right?
    now i have to remember which shop i was in with my mum over the holidays..
    If i find it again, I will let you know ASAP!

  2. I have been researching for you and have not given up yet.

    I think they may be porcelain. I have a few thoughts for you so far.

    Contact Ruby it. and send them a phot as they may be able to track them down or give you more info on them.

    If you want something in the same spirit, I found this: ebay item number 220280697652, all whit, but still you would think of her every time you saw it.

    I might also stop by some antique dealers or antique appraisal houses and see if they can lead you in a better direction.

    They look eerily familiar...Lenox maybe?

    I will keep on looking.

    Rubt Lane seems to be the authority on Vintage ceramics.

  3. I have been looking for them too. If I have any luck I'll let you know.

  4. Dude, SSG is ON IT. If she ever goes shopping. Which she avoids like incarcerated neighbors. But if she DOES GO. And sees these. Consider. Them. Yours.
