    This is a set of 5 Little Black Angel figures. Circa 1940's Chalkware (plaster) These were made by Herman J Kleiner Jr. My, second cousin (mothers cousin) He made a whole line of Christmas Figures that he marketed though gift shops and department stores. I believe these were wedding presents to my mother, along with a couple Santa's. They always had a special spot at our family Christmas. Two Angels with wings , a boy with a horn, one with a harp and one holding a candle up.
    These figures inspired my collection of Black Americana. A couple years ago I had a black friend over for Thanksgiving. He took some offence at my Black collection I am sorry to say. What I didn't tell him is that because of these figures, I grew up thinking that all little black boys were Angels!
