CHRGC102: "Glass Eyes" Santa
Please contact me PRIOR to purchasing this Santa. This is an extremely rare German Santa candy container in large size with GLASS EYES, the only glassed one we have seen in dealing with antique holiday items in 30 years.He dates from the 1920s and is original. He wears his original felt red jacket with white trim. He has a glossy black belt, a red cap which matches his costume, and painted glossy black boots. Under his coat, one can see his blue pants, with some fading and minor wear. Please view all my photos for this. There is a small worn hole to the blue pants. His cardboard tummy is a little loose from the lower part of the cardboard tube. A slight touch of glue will remedy this. Beautifully painted face with some faint crazing, some wear to white painted eyebrows. Painted lashes and blue glass eyes. Rabbit fur beard appears original as well, with some wear to mustache area. Mohair peeks out from under hood, with some wear to hair at Santa"s left side. He holds a feather tree in one hand. He stands a majestic 28 inches tall. Please view my photos as they are considered part of the description. Please contact me with questions. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues.
