A nice example of a 19th century chalkware Santa figure, probably Pennsylvania made, similar in form to the German paperboard Belsnickles of the same period. The figure is hollow, and appears to retain its original chalk red coloring on the outside, which easily rubs off when handled. Very good overall condition, with expected wear and some surface color losses - one corner chip is visible. A great antique Christmas collectible! Dimensions: Approximately 11” h x 4” w x 3 ½” d.
