Snowman Collection, Top 100 (Nine For Christmas Eve)

Rate: 6 Flag
This winter I want to share my favorite snowmen from my personal stash of over 1,000 antique collectibles, photographs and artwork.
The collection was on display at the Albright Memorial Library in Scranton, PA (and on TV a couple of times).
Down to the last twenty, here's ten sweet, fun snowmen for Christmas Eve. Tomorrow for Christmas Day the final ten.

The 3-D snowmen in this group are all very small between 2" to 3".

Most were found on ebay, flea markets, Brimfield and antique shops.

I have about 5o diferent snowman "toys" like these.

Ahhh, an example of the snowman looking a lot like W.C. Fields.

Real magazine promising stories inside of "Peroxide and Wrestling!"

Soap from England. Hat and pipe plastic.

Beautiful postcard from Netherlands.
