Kreiss Reindeer

Of all of my treasures that I have collected over the years...nothing can compare to my vintage ceramic reindeer produced by Kreiss in the 1950's. Each reindeer came with a bell and a name tag around its neck. Other than that I really don't know much more than that concerning my cute little friends but I'm always on the look out for them. Come along and let me show you my little dears..no pun intended and the home I've created for them. I hope you find them as lovable as I do! ~amy

I also collect vintage santas, snowmen & angels from the fifties but have never run across these adorable reindeer! I will be looking more closely for them now, they are precious!

I am not positive, but I think I have seen some of those reindeer at yard sales. I am going to have to keep my eyes open.

Totally an awesome 1950s vibe. I do love all this kind of stuff - When i was a kid, my Grandmother gave us all her holiday decorations, and so I grew up with 40s/50s decorations all over the house. Awesome.

Very fun - - - and for some reason it takes me right back to my northwoods roots!

These reindeer look familiar. Now I'll be racking my brain trying to remember who in the family had them. Thanks for sharing and Happy Holidays!

Adorable! I love the reindeer faces-very 1950s (don't they remind you of Bambi?)!

I don't think I've ever seen deer like that, because I know that if I did, I would have bought them! They are sooo pretty, and I love the way you have them displayed, with the lights and the little house. Just beautiful!
Happy VTT and Merry Christmas!
