    This set of three Easter chicks are the only new decorations I picked up this year. I went here and there but none anywhere. These I found at the Long Beach Antique Flea Market back in January.
    These were made in occupied Japan or at least many of these are marked "Occupied Japan". Thus these are most likely from Japan and that era.
    These are the smallest of the chenille chickens and of course are chicks which is to say baby chickens and not something else.
    I may or may not get another post in before Easter so stay tuned to the website.

      I collect these and make reproductions. Have you Noticed when you turn the check over and look at their underside, you will notice that the chenille pom-poms are glued down to what appears to maybe be a cork? I’m trying to figure out what these are. Do you or anyone else have any guesses? Everyone that is the type that you show here has these inside them. These were mass produced in Japan. Some are very elaborate holding Parasols or various types of hats and vintage florals. I’m just perplexed at what that is on the inside. It is used not only to provide substance, but there are slits in it and that is where the wire legs and feet are attached. Without that the legs would flop around in the soft fabric of the chenille. Any ideas anyone?
