A trio of three standing classic Tavern brand Santa Claus Christmas novelty candles by Socony Vacuum Oil Co. from the 1950s. They're 5 inches tall (not the more common miniature/small size) and appear to be laughing Ho Ho Ho with their hands in their pockets and big red open mouths.
The candles have never been lit though they do have some wear from years of use and display. The eye paint is pretty much gone. There is light red paint loss to the backs of each, mostly at the hat areas. One Santa has a chipped foot, another has some melted white wax at the side of one boot from another candle.
