I found several of these ceramic/porcelain bisque Christmas bells this year.  Bisque porcelain means that it is a ceramic that has been fired but not glazed.  It has a porous nature, unlike china which is non porous  They are often hand painted. The ones I'm posting about  are barely vintage, most are from the late  1980's and early 1990's, but I love them.  Some were in their original boxes and were sold through 7-11 stores.  The pair of angels above are so cute.  They have little chimers inside.
Here are a few of the Santa bells, each has a little chimer like the ones above.      
                                                                                                                                                                  Isn't this little bear the sweetest?

Little bear tea lite holder. 

I have to say, this one with the little Christmas mouse is one of my favorites!  It's made for a taper candle.

This cottage is an ornament, bell and a Christmas lite cover.  There is an opening in the back for the light.

Angel ornaments.
 Last, 2 little mice all tucked in, stockings hung with care, dreaming of sugar plums and waiting for Santa!
It would be very simple to start your own collection because there is such a variety and they are easy to find.  Collect just bells or concentrate on the bears and mice!

More info many of these items in my Vintage Tinsel Etsy Shop.
