HL489GC: Rare Belsnickle Santa

A wonderful circa 1900 papier mache German Belsnickle Santa. This wonderful holiday decoration stands 9" tall. Unusual black rocky base, featuring molded rock shapes. The Santa's clothing is painted red, accented with gold speckling. Painted facial features, cotton batting along the rim of his cap. Some flecks and chips to painted surface, such as his hat tip, side of coat, back of base. Tiny pinhole indicates where is original feather sprig would have been placed. Brown paper wrapping cover on the bottom has separated from the base, but can be reglued. A wonderful and unusual holiday figure!
