VC8025SO: Large German Santa
This is a wonderful vintage Santa. He has been in my personal collection for decades and I have only displayed him twice. He has been packed away and this is the first time I have offered him for sale. He stands 15" tall and is all original. His wool felt costume is in good order with no obvious signs of fading. Great original matching cap. Papier mache hands, one holds a goose feather sprig. Real fur beard, great character-like expression, fine details such as wrinkles around eyes, rosy nose. Blue painted eyes (pupil in one eye has some wear). Molded painted white eyebrows. Some minor wear to black painted boots. Stands very well unsupported, When he arrived to me, I could feel his torso had separated into two parts--upper torso, lower torso. Both parts have flat foundations or bases, so one sits upon the other well and none of this is visible. Possibly could be re-glued with a hypodermic needle filled with glue--insert the needle through clothing to different parts of the torso and inject glue, then allow the two parts to sit, one upon the other, until dry. I have not done this, as he displays just fine without. He's a really nice size and great old Santa with a wonderful character face to add to your holiday collection. Don't need him by Christmas? We offer layaway. Contact us for details. Please click here to view additional magnified photos and click on your BACK button in your browser to return to this page.
