My aunt, before she died in 1981, collected Goebel angel bells for many years, and my sister and I shared her collection after she died. Recently my sister has been diagnosed with a serious illness and for Christmas, I looked and looked for an angel to sit beside her bed, and I came across the Goebel angel bell 2009, and I sent it to her for Christmas. She loved it. and it is comparable to the bells my aunt collected, and the colors are bright and cheerful. I will probably order another one for me.
