This happy Mid Century Christmas Tree dish with its hand painted Ornaments, Gold Star and accents, well it just makes me smile! It measures about 6 3/8 inches wide at the base of the Tree, 1 inch deep and about 10 1/2 inches high. Is in excellent condition, still has the HH Japan sticker on the bottom. I love Holt Howard pieces, they evoke a feeling of "Miracle on 34th Street", going to Macy's (in my case Lazarus) to give Santa my Christmas Wish List, a happier time when Magic was in the air! I found the following information about Holt-Howard on About.com;
"When Howards Met Holt,
Brothers John and Robert (Bob) Howard met A. Grant Holt while attending the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the early 1940s. Later in the decade—after John served in and was wounded in World War II, Bob got a master’s degree in business administration from Harvard University and Grant did post-graduate work in Sweden—the friends reconnected to look into that business they’d always thought about starting up. While Holt was in Sweden, he saw potential in a couple of Christmas decorations: a paper star intended to hang in windows and thin metal angel chimes, called Angel-Abra, which became quite popular. A company was born

Christmas Ceramics
With their cute, animated faces and atomic shapes, Holt-Howard’s holiday ceramics were a hit with young Mid century American consumers who didn't want their homes to mirror those of their parents. Bob Howard—a longtime artist—did many of the designs and sketches, along with a few other artists. While not a popular concept today, Holt-Howard joined other companies of the era in lowering manufacturing costs by taking production overseas. The main showroom was in New York, eventually moving to Stamford, Connecticut."
The Late Sixties: Times They Were A ‘Changin’
In 1968, Holt-Howard was bought by the General Housewares Corporation and headquarters were moved to Hyannis, Massachusetts. By 1974, The Howard brothers and A. Grant Holt had left the company to pursue other businesses. What remained of Holt-Howard was sold to Kay Dee Designs of Rhode Island in 1990; there is no longer a Holt-Howard ceramics company in operation.
