This 1960s Japan ceramic Santa Claus coin bank comes in its original plain cardboard box. Santa is 6-1/2 inches high and has one green mittened hand raised in a wave, the other holds the toy sack slung over his shoulder. The bank appears to be unused with original foil label intact on the back and plastic plug present at the bottom. However, it appears age and possibly heat have cause the red cold paint to flake at one side below Santa's belt. The bank is otherwise spotlessly clean with no damage and the box is intact. The foil label reads "By Nanco, Nancy Sales Co. Inc, Boston Mass 02129, Made In Japan".
