Up for sale is a vintage Santa Claus figure that I am told is the Russian version of St. Nick. He is typically shown in a long, Russian-style coat and rather than the typical santa hat we are all used to, he has a fur lined hood. Like the German santa, he wears long leather boots. I am also told he carries a staff, so that may be what was once in his outstretched hand. He has a bag at his feet for the toys. The figure has a cardboard body and the face and hands appear to be some type of hard shiny plastic. He is about 10" tall.
