This is a 1940s Noma Illuminated Christmas Halo Angel tree topper. She has a hand painted composition head and movable arms, rayon-mohair platinum blond hair, long glittered silver foil wings, and a silver foil crown headband. At the back of her head is a metal star halo in front of a clear plastic candle halo which fits over the light bulb to illuminate the angel's face.
The doll is 8 inches high from head to the bottom of her off-white embossed satin gown (some versions had a plastic dress), the silvered foil paper wings add about another 2 inches in height. Her skirt hides a cardboard tube which slips over the top branch of the Christmas tree.
One of the angel's wings has a half-inch horizontal tear just above the left side hinge - it doesn't go all the way across (see last photo). The light cord is held in place around her waist with a long twist tie over the original thin wire. Her silver foil paper belt is torn at the center. The face is in remarkable condition for her age, considering how easily this type of composition face crazed, cracked, and flaked. The box is in good condition, though the original cellophane window is no longer present. Three patent numbers, the most recent dating to 1943, are printed on the box.
