This vintage mesh stocking is decorated with a Santa face that is made of painted composition. He has a cotton beard and is wearing a red felt hat that is trimmed with chenille. Attached to the stocking, behind Father Christmas, there are two foil leaves. They are silver now but originally they were green which you can see in the photo. The top of the stocking has a red, mesh ribbon that could be used as a drawstring so the bag could be filled with goodies and securely closed. These were often used on a Christmas tree or as a party favor. It is not marked but I would assume it was made in Japan in the 1930's.
It measures about 5 ½" in length and about 2 ½" across the middle. The Santa measures about 2 ½" from the top of his hat to the bottom of his beard. It is in very nice original condition with minimal wear and no noticeable damage.
