Vintage Christmas Ornament: Toy Soldier

Adding the Traditional Toy Soldier to Your Christmas Tree

toy soldier ornament Vintage Christmas Ornament: Toy SoldierIt is hard to even picture a traditional vintage Christmas scene without the inclusion of a wooden toy soldier, either as a Christmas nutcracker, as part of the The Nutcracker ballet, or as a toy or ornament for a Christmas tree.  Any Christmas tree that is filled with vintage or antique Christmas ornaments should have at least one toy soldier hanging from the tree or guarding the presents at the base of the tree.

Vintage and antique toy soldiers are not as easy to find as you might think, however, so if you come across one at a garage sale, vintage shop, or online that is in good condition, you should snatch it up right away.  You may have better luck looking for wooden toy soldiers as antique nutcrackers because of the popularity of the The Nutcracker ballet over time.

Nevertheless, the wooden toy soldier ornament can be found with some searching in wood, and also in some other materials like paper mache, and plastic.  If you are a traditionalist, wood is really the only material that will work for you.

For that reason, I have listed the vintage wood toy soldier ornaments first below.  I am sure that they go quickly online, so if you want one, don't wait.

Searching Ebay for Vintage Toy Soldiers

You will note that if you search Ebay for vintage toy Christmas ornaments, that there are not a lot of choices, but you can find toy soldier ornaments in wood, plastic, felt, and sometimes porcelain.

I recommend searching for vintage Christmas ornaments, then narrowing it down by type.  If you take a look at this picture to the right, these were finds at a vintage shop.  The soldiers are plastic, but in beautiful condition.  It is hard to pass up finds like these.

If you are not satisfied with the picture on Ebay, you can ask the seller for more pictures or a better description.

Vintage Toy Soldier Christmas Ornaments Made from Fabric

From time to time, you will also come across fabric toy soldier ornaments, made from felt, spun cotton, or flocked.  Soldiers will be shown alone, or sometimes with musical instruments like a horn, or drum.
