This very wonderful antique German Father Christmas or Santa is in great condition, with rich and unusual colors. He is papier mache and has a raspberry (not Christmas red) colored painted coat, dusted with sparkling mica. His coat is accented with a lavender painted trim, VERY unusual. A few tiny flakes of paint missing here and there, but minor. He has a detailed painted beard, an wonderfully detailed painted face (including painted wrinkle lines on forehead), painted black boots standing on a "rock" or "boulder" which is also mica dusted . It looks like some silver flakes on the rock, as well...He holds a vivid green feather tree sprig. He stands about 12~1/4" tall. He separates into two pieces, revealing a hidden compartment to conceal treasures or treats. The paper covering on the candy compartment is festive and very unusual! I have several more photos, if you are interested...just email me. A really fabulous antique candy container to add to a special holiday collection!
