  • Details:  This is a lovely pair of angel bell ornaments from HomCo (Home Interiors & Gifts).  These are quite rare, hard to find.  Each one is holding a different musical instrument, one has a harp and the other a flute.  What makes these really special is the "sugared" finish on their gowns, very unique and vintage looking.  They are porcelain with a matte finish except for the sugared glaze.  The colors are white with green accents. They both retain their original foil HomCo stickers that read: "Made in Sri Lanka".  They are also stamped on the bottom with the HomCo logo and number 8800.  There are some condition issues, please see Condition below.    
  • Material:  Porcelain
  • Dimensions:  7.0 inches Tall, approx. 3.0 inches Wide (at widest point).
  • Condition:  Vintage - Used.  Good Vintage Condition.  Both have been repaired, their wings have been glued back on.  We did not make these repairs so cannot guarantee, but they look well done, pictured for you.  Otherwise, there are NO chips or scratches, the bells both have their clappers, except for the wing repairs they are really perfect.  Please review all pictures and make sure you love this item before purchasing, we can't accept returns.  Please remember these are VINTAGE and ANTIQUE items, they are NOT new, every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections.  Some pictures have been enhanced to show detail.
HomCo (Home Interiors & Gifts), was founded by Mary C. Crowley in Carrollton, Texas on December 5, 1957.  Mary structured the company much like Mary Kay Cosmetics, Avon and others who had mostly women selling door to door and at home parties.  They purchased items mostly from Asian manufacturers like China, Taiwan, and the Philippines and distributed them through their distribution network. The company celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1983 and had grown sales to $400 million.  Sadly, Mary Crowley died of cancer in 1987, Don Carter, her second husband, became president and CEO and by the early 1990's the company had sales of over $850 million, with some 42,000 independent sales people.  In 1994 Don wanted to retire, the company was sold to the investment firm of Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst in a $1 billion leveraged buyout.  However, by April 29, 2008 they filed for bankruptcy.  After bankruptcy Home Interiors was bought by the owners and founders of Home & Garden Party.  In 2009 they merged the two companies renaming it Celebrating Home and it continues to operate from Home and Garden Party's headquarters in Marshall, TX.
