A beautifully painted German wooden Christmas soldier measuring just under 24" tall on a custom stand. The soldier is one of the Queen's Guard at Buckingham Palace and wears a bear skin hat. The soldier is made up of multiple turned wood pieces held under tension by an internal cord so you can move his arms and lets. Highly stylized and beautiful original paint. This would make a great centerpiece for the Holidays. Originally probably a store display. Excellent condition.
