This is a fabulous rare large 25" Santa or Father Christmas candy container, which separates into 2 pieces, to reveal a secret compartment where one can hide candy and tiny toys. Original crimson colored cardboard cylinder with painted black bots with mica sparkles and a mica covered wooden base. Father Christmas wears a scarlet mohair coat with some wear to the nap of the fur, exposing some balding spots and thinning, but overall excellent. Cotton cord sash around waist. wire aperture in arms for posing, molded painted hands in good condition. He holds goose feather tree in one hand. He carries a basket filled with Christmas goodies, paper soldier, some antique dolls, etc. Vintage teddy, a small dollhouse, school bell, etc. Fur beard. Unusual and beautiful face with painted eyes, painted lashes, painted upper eyebrows, blushed nose, rosy cheeks, unusual mouth with teeth showing. Mohair matching cap accented with foil leaves. Really a wonderful large Santa figure! German. More photos available upon request. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Layaway is available. A 20% non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway.
Shipping is an estimate. I only charge actual shipping costs plus a minimal charge for my boxes, packing materials, etc used to ship your purchase. I will refund any excess you have paid once your item is ready to ship. Shipping cost is based on USPS Priority shipping, weight of box, and size of box. I can get a fairly decent discount on INSURANCE fees, if shipped REGISTERED, which is not an option in Ruby Lane calculated shipping. Unfortunately shipping rates continue to climb and anything over 12" is considered oversized and is charged a surcharge....I don't make money on shipping.
