Tis the season when ol' Mister Jolly comes down the chimbly--little kids call them 'chimblies'--and leaves your heart's desire under the tree. (Mine was supposed to be 6'2", buff, blue eyed, and a Rhodes Scholar. I haven't got him yet.)
Here we have the Santa scene immortalized in this sweet bit 'o kitsch. It's in wonderful condition. The music box plays beautifully--not like the digitized electronic things that sounds like Pixar's WALL-E taking voice lessons. This is a real plink plink, metal pics on metal teeth music box. Not Swiss, but not robotic, either. It's a nice Jingle Bells. I see no manufacturer's marks on the decoration itself. The box gives a distributor and Made In Japan. There is wear to the box, especially the side with the label.
Made in Japan. Distributed by some mail order place in Minneapolis, MN. If the name of the distributor hadn't been torn I might be able to find out who it was. Santa stands on the chimney--he comes separately so you can pose him however you wish. Base is plastic, with flocked fabric brick decorations. The tree is a tinsel, door is decal--paper. The bottom is wood and that makes for a nice soundboard for the music box attached inside. The tableau turns as the music plays. It's all going on, here, so break out the eggnog and sing along.
Measurements: 6" tall and 5" wide at the base. Santa--lil' plastic faced happy fellow-- has a red, flocked suit and a silky beard. He's about 2" tall, and has a 'Made In Japan' sticker on his butt. Wonder if he knows. Should I tell him? Nah.
Postage is approximate. I won't know actual postage until I get a zip code (or if I can do flat rate box) Thank you for peeking in!
