This cute Mid Century lighted Santa Claus Christmas display for mantle, window, or tabletop has no marks or labels but it was probably made in Japan in the 1960s. A standing Santa figure is mounted on a 4 by 8-1/2 inch mica glitter encrusted platform. He stands next to a mica coated lighted electric candle which is wrapped in plastic holly and red lacquered berries. The lighted display is about 9-1/2 inches high.
The display lights up fine as shown in the last photo. If I were keeping it, I'd use a razor knife to the bottom and back of the base to make a slit for the cord so it stands level. The glitter is a light sand-beige color, not white. The Santa figure's beard and fur trim have age yellowing, they're not white either. If you look closely, you'll see that Santa is missing one chenille eyebrow - I didn't notice it until I was editing the closeup photo.
