This early Japanese Santa candy container is a fairly large size. The Santa has a painted composition face, hands and boots with a red felt-like material for his suit. He is attached to a thick cardboard base that is covered in a sparkly but somewhat dirty white coating.

The rabbit fur trim on his felt coat is starting to shed but is still mostly intact. He is 13 inches tall...due to the tall pointy hat. The boots are painted composition and there is a hole in one hand for the tree branch but it is not there. He probably put it down so he could pick up an axe or sword. The cardboard base and bottom half of the Santa pull out to reveal the candy box in the body. Overall condition is very good to excellent.

This is my absolute favorite Japanese Santa. I just love the malevolent look on his face. With the wide open mouth and two rows of teeth he looks like he is about to eat a small child not drop off presents to one. If he never sells and I have to keep him in my dwindling Santa Claus collection that would be alright with me.

If you are planning to purchase more than one item, do not immediately pay…wait for me to confirm your purchase order…I may be able to give you a reduced price due to being able to combine shipping.
