This is the most darling Santa ready to brighten your Christmas. He’s a vintage 40-50s Made in Japan little fellow with a painted clay face, red flannel chenille trimmed suit, cotton beard, wired body & black painted composition boots.
He’s riding in a thick cardboard & mica covered large sleigh filled with 4 miniature wrapped
packages. Santa has an old red cord tied to his hands and gently draped over his handsome celluloid reindeer. The reindeer is dusted with a little gold glitter. Santa is unmarked but typical of the period, sleigh is unmarked & reindeer is marked “Made in Occupied Japan.” .
Santa measures about 5”, sleigh is 7” long, and reindeer is about 5” height. It’s very rare to find these reindeer without missing or broken antlers. This one is excellent. Besides a little yellowing to Santa’s beard & chenille, this set is in excellent, vintage condition & ready to display.
