CHRGC103: Mohair Coat/Santa
This exceptional vintage pre 1920s papier mache German Father Christmas or Santa is delightful, wearing his original cream colored mohair coat. He measures an impressive 26 inches tall and comes with his original wicker basket for presents, candies, glass garlands and toys for little tots who have behaved well throughout the year. The wicker basket has been decorated with some white paint and scattered with mica flakes for sparkle. His hands and face are have original painted and he is in wonderful condition. He’s a very early German turn of the century figure. Papier mache with cardboard tube body, one can see some areas along the bottom edge of rim which will need to be be reinforced with some glue, as it has separated here in several places. His hands can be filled with old glass garland or even tinsel. These always look great with small feather sprigs, also!
