Private Stash: Valentine Bell Figurine

Today I’m finally sharing my one vintage Valentine decoration. I found this ceramic Valentine themed bell at a garage sale last summer and only paid $1.00. Her dress is covered with red hearts with spaghetti detail for the trim. Spaghetti ceramic art was popular in the 1950s and 1960s. This hands-on process lasted until the mid-1960s. I’m guessing this girl is from the early 1960s because her short spaghetti strands. Earlier pieces sometimes had longer strands. These pieces are fragile and you need to make sure the spaghetti detail is not chipped. Her heart shaped bonnet adds to her adorableness! I’m always on the hunt for more ceramic figurines to share.

Happy Valentine's Day!
