CHRGC101: Candy Container
Sold as is. This wonderful Father Christmas candy container is in a large 22" size. Standing on the wooden base which has been painted black, with his black painted boots firmly planted on base, there is some paint wear and some crazing. Also decorated with flakes of sparkling mica. He wears his original terra- cotta felt colored coat with a cotton or silk cord tied at his waist. Lining of coat appears to be painted sky blue when you peek underneath. His coat has a band of fleece which travels down the front of his coat. Coat shows strokes of paint which appear to resemble snow and is mica dusted for sparkle like snow.His hands have been painted. The cuffs of his coat show wear down to the crinoline base of the cuffs.. Back of coat has been painted with strokes of white paint with mica dusting. Sand colored collar has some trimming also painted in spots to look like snow. Hood has worn to underside, leaving patches of wool nap visible. Please note, Santa has been repainted at some point. His cardboard cylinder which makes up his body has also been reconstructed or repaired. Hand painted face with blue painted eyes, painted eyelashes, painted white eyebrows, pronounced nose has been repainted as have his chubby cheeks. Possible touch up to white eyebrows. Body separates into two pieces to reveal cardboard tube where candies and treasures can be hidden. His coat is slightly more rosy in back. Good condition with overall slight soiling. Tiny hole worn to back of coat--very minor. Please view all my photos as they are also part of the description and will reveal anything I may have forgotten. Wire aperture in upper arms for positioning, if desired. Please note, once again, he is a lovely Santa, but his cylinder candy container appears to have been replaced or repaired and much of his body, including face has been repainted. SOLD AS IS.
