VC8024SO: German Candy Container
Outstanding papier mache Santa or Father Christmas candy container circa 1910-20. Great detailing and coloring to his face, with expertly painted wrinkles, eyeliner, pupils in blue eyes, etc. Original fur bears and mustache. Original clothing and feather tree sprig with red berry at the top. Painted blue paints and jet black painted boots. Costume with hat is a wool felt. He separates into two pieces, revealing a secret compartment where candy can be hidden. Marked Germany. Some wear to the inside cardboard tube. He stands 7" tall and he will stand without a metal stand for support. Condition is great for this antique holiday item. Some crackling to oil cloth belt, minor paint wear here and there and some overall faint soiling. Please view all my photos, as they depict the candy container accurately. A great item to add to you festive Christmas collection this year! 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. Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all.
