Standing just over 6-1/4 inches tall to the top of his red wool flannel cap, this vintage Santa Claus Putz figure has a hand painted paper mache' face and real cotton beard. His jacket is piped in white pipe cleaner. The jacket is finished with a black belt complete with gold buckle on his belly. He is holding a bottle brush tree in one arm. He stands upright on a white mica-encrusted round disc base. There is no mark on his base but I have no problems at all attributing him to Japan circa 1950's. He is in very nice vintage condition,the base around the leg area has several breaks in the composition. This is very common in these figures and does not impact his ability to stand.
