This 1950s mesh Christmas stocking is still filled with the original toys and novelties. Overall length including the cardboard Santa header is 19-1/2 inches, the stocking itself is 15-1/2 inches to the top opening. The contents include a plush reindeer, wooden bird, plush koala bear in Santa hat, clothespin soldier ornament, card of jingle bells, plastic ornament, fake fingers and nose, toy rings, various small plastic toys including a whistle, and other items that can't be seen well.
The stocking and contents appear to be in excellent condition. The cardboard header has age yellowing and appears to have been removed at one time then re-stapled. The header is marked Christmas Greetings, Dillon Beck Mfg. Co., Hillside N.J., Made and Printed in U.S.A. (many of the toys were made in Japan).
