Vintage Retro Modern Mid Century Modernist Made in Japan Cardboard Santa Claus Jumping Jack with Bell
Made in Japan and dating to the 1960s or so may I offer this wall or window decoration - a Santa Claus that when you pull the bottom string, his arms move up and down (a jumping jack I do believe). Santa carries a bell in one hand and the expression on this guy is absolutely adorable! Condition is very nice for its age but when you look closely there is surface markings like dust and maybe a thin layer of dust. I don't want to clean because then it might leave a bigger mark so i will leave cleaning to the new owner. Light edge wear at the top of the hat and the bottom of the boots - a Sharpie pen could pencil in some color. String is original and the bells tinkle like crazy. Other than the Made in Japan marking at the bottom there is no maker mark but the piece does have a Holt Howard look about it.
Size: With no "arms out" 10-1/4" long x 4-3/4".
