1950s Vintage German Advent Calendar with Envelope, Childrens Unused Count Down Christmas Calendar Angels in decorations

$28.00




Wonderful colorful vintage German countdown to Christmas advent calendar, featuring child angels in a flurry of activity! Please view the details to see all that is going on in this fun vintage Christmas decoration. Complete with original unused envelope, circa late 1940s to early 1950s.


The lively scene features over 20 small angels preparing for Christmas. The two story cottage is capped with snow and brightly decorated, set in the forest against a blue sky. There are numerous silver glitter accents throughout.
It measures 9 inches by 9.5 inches and is in very good vintage condition having never been opened. There are no marks, tears, or stains. The color lithography is vibrant and crisp with no fading. Early German lithographic printing is known for its high quality and attention to detail. Most of the door tabs are shut tight, unopened in their die cut holes. (A few have a slight gap.) There is a bit of paper loss in the upper sky, likely where it was displayed with tape at one time.

We have no idea what delightful surprises will appear behind the doors, but we know they will be fun! The style number 270/2 is printed in the lower right corner. On the left, "Printed in Western Germany" is printed in small text. The unused envelope is clean and crisp, showing some age toning and foxing. It also has this mark. It retains the original store pricing sticker on the back, always a fun bonus on these old Christmas collectibles.

We estimate this to have been produced in the late 1940s since both pieces are marked, "Printed in Western Germany", a required mark beginning in 1949 when West Germany was formed. The first marks used this spelled out Western Germany text. A bit later, it was shortened to simply "West Germany or W Germany". This fun vintage advent calendar was distributed into the early to mid 1950s Christmas seasons.

Open a door each day in excited anticipation of the coming Christmas holiday. What a great addition to your vintage German count down to Christmas advent calendar collection!
