The center of this year's Easter kitchen putz: yellow, aqua and pink barn putz houses by Howard Lamey, Blue and purple roofed putz houses are working copies of vintage candy containers by Karl Fey--tops lift off; large duck cutout is an antique Rafael Tuck chromo; jadite rabbit is a vintage salt cellar on the left from the 30's; the cobalt hen on the right is a vintage salt cellar, same time. The grey and brown rabbits left and right, are lead, vintage, German, 1900's. The little figures are vintage made in Japan, 1950's. The porcelain floral egg pillboxes are vintage made in Japan--the rest of the scene are repros or new pieces lovingly collected from tag sales and the dollar store. THE ENTIRE SCENE IS A MIX OF VINTAGE, ANTIQUE AND NEW PIECES

Maria,
This is the best Easter scene. I just love this. Anyone who walks by this display must stop to look at it better. It is delightful.

Thank you everyone for the comments---the pair of rabbits selling eggs "cards" are new repro dummy boards I picked up in a tag sale for a dollar each a few years back! They were being sold by BAYBERRY COVE FOR $10 each!
