HL519GC: Glass Eyed Santa
This outstanding and very rare antique German papier mache Father Christmas or Santa figure measures 20.5 inches tall--an unusually large size! Condition is excellent, with very minor wear. Coal black coat speckled with fine white to represent snowfall. Real curly mohair accents his hood and sleeves. Real fur beard, painted wrinkles at forehead and vibrant blue GLASS set eyes! His hood is embellished with molded, painted holly leaves and berries. Some paint flaking or wear to tip of hood and some of the red berries--I would consider this very minor. He carries a large goose feather branch in a deep pine green. Molded, black painted boots. He stand on top of a papier mache mica covered "rock" base. He separates at the bottom of his coat to reveal a small container to hide candy surprises! He resembles , in style, a Belsnickle. An outstanding and very unusual Father Christmas figure to add to your antique holiday display! Perfect displayed under a feather tree!
