VC5713GC: Santa/Nodding Donkey
This wonderful German Christmas display features Father Christmas with a painted face and real fur beard. Some crazing and cracking have occurred to the finish of his face over the decades. He is dressed in his original crimson wool felt coat with unusual blue collar. Soiling to one sleeve. He wears slate blue wool felt pants and has glossy black painted boots. There is a place in one hand intended for the reins to control the donkey's meandering, but the reins are missing. One could substitute a small goose feather tree! The donkey is covered with light grey nappy felt and has glass eyes. When pushed, his head goes up and down, causing him to nod . There is a hole in the side of the donkey which may have housed a keywind--I am not certain. This figure measures 16.5" from nose to tail and stands about 17" tall, measuring to Santa's hat. This is a very impressive large holiday item which would be an excellent addition to a Christmas vignette.
