Large Vintage Flat Dresden Santa Claus Standing Figure

This friendly St. Nicholas is pressed die cut heavy cardboard with a rich textured red robe trimmed in white glitter. There is good relief especially on the face and flowing white beard. Even Santa's friendly face has fine wrinkles. Next to him is standing a doe with a golden bell. The height is 11 ¼ and the widest part 5 inches (28.5 x 12 cm). This is a wonderful nostalgic find for your Christmas Putz.. This the corrected one

This item is an exciting 80 year old find from former East Germany. The factory made these items before the turn of the century until the establishment was destroyed in WW2. What I am offering you is from an unused stock that was made in the 40's and survived the war packed away in a safe place. These items were packed away before the war and never saw the light which would darken the quality of the cardboard. They were painted after they were found again and not before they were packed away in the 40's. They have never been used or displayed.

The classic Dresden technique involves first die cutting out the paper maché form one at a time and then pressing the reliefs onto the surface with a weight of almost 1000 pounds. After that, each single piece was then spray painted and decorated by hand.

Item ID: 633081 XM4.3
