Happy Easter to my fellow Putz House enthusiasts. I present to you an Easter "House of the Month" actually two "Houses of the Month". In all of my years collecting I had never seen "Easter" putz Houses before. This year I bought two of them off of Ebay, each from a different seller. Who knew? If any of you have similar Easter House could you please share some pictures. These two houses are from the same set. They are the same size and have the same oval stamp "Made in Japan". The measure 6" wide x 4-3/4" deep x 3-5/8" tall. The thickness of the base is 11/16". The chickens are really cool and look like they're made of composition or clay. Fun Stuff...

I love these, Pete. Thank you for sharing photos of your treasures. I would love to have some of these chicks if they were ever reproduced. About how old do you think they are? Post-war Japan?

Hello Lucy. I forgot to state that these are definitely 1930's. Probably the middle 30's. If I can remove these without hurting anything it would be easy to cast them.
