I found 15 these at a thrift store, not sure if they are vintage. most have a little paint loss. Does anyone know what they are for? They are 2 1/2 " high.

    I think they might be covers for a string of lights...maybe? Love them.
    There are two blogs I read who collect vintage Christmas....Oodles and Oodles
    And Monkeybox. You might ping them and ask.

    Yes, I think that they are very probably covers for a light set. The form of the santa figure is vintage-looking, but it doesn't look as old as I would expect it to be if it came from that era. However, I could easily be wrong about its age. Follows 1.) links to similar items on ebay, and 2.) some links to antique Christmas sites that feature vintage lights, lighting sets, etc.
