Vintage Paper Board Houses, Made in Japan (c.1950s)

Rush Creek Vintage

Sorry, this item has SOLD

Build your own winter wonderland with our vintage paper board houses from Japan. Often called Putz houses, this group of three houses and a church is a good start towards creating an entire village. Place among greenery, add a few bottle brush trees and you'll have a village scene from long ago.

Popular in the 1950s, these are made from heavy paper board, paint, mica glitter, cellophane for the windows and a loofah tree. Each house has a hole on the back to allow room for lights to be placed inside. The tallest square blue house has a hanging wire on the back so it can be used as an ornament. (Actually you can make them all ornaments if you're crafty)...
