This is a very rare spun cotton and Chenille Christmas Ornament - Decoration. I have seen a lot of these figures but never one on skis that are intact as well as his ski poles. The skis are made of card board with silver paper on top. The ski poles are Chenille stems with small silver card board disc. His arms and legs are Chenille stems. His fat little red body is old spun cotton and his face is as well with hand painted detail. The spun cotton on his face is so hard it is almost like a clay face. He is in excellent condition and is Circa 1920 - 1930.
