Vintage Napco Poinsettia Christmas Candle Holders


Up at the Lake Geneva Antique Mall (which...is Trump Country, FYI.  MAGA and all that what-have-yous are involved.  Also, I think it means that Nat might not let us go back.  Also, the fact that the guy asked us to leave because the King of the Ball Tossers was touching toys.  Imagine that!  Toys!), I came across this pair of Poinsettia candle stick holders.  They're marked Napco 1957 on the bottom and have what I assume is a "Made in Japan" sticker that has been smudged pretty harshly.

You can see the marks in the photo below.

One note:  this did NOT come home with us.

I didn't particularly love them.  And we have just gone through a Christmas season where most of our vintage Christmas collection was relegated to an upper shelf in our green room up front where nobody - including me - could see them.  They brought me little joy - and were a pain to unwrap/re-wrap after the season had passed.  Not to mention that Nat had purged about half of the pieces - that weren't Santas or weren't pottery.  I have two bags of my treasures that I'll redistribute to family ahead of next season's festivities.

So, plenty of reasons why these aren't destined for our home.  And I'm good with that.

Say it again with me:  It is enough to enjoy the existence of things without possessing all of them.
