WONDERFUL VINTAGE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY CLAY FACE PINE CONE SANTA CLAUS FIGURINE. What a great old Christmas Holiday decoration. Very unusual style and design. Santa is free standing, perfect for your Christmas Village, Putz, Nativity or model railroad under the tree. Vintage Christmas holiday figurines and decorations such as these, were sold in the five and dime stores such as Woolworth's, Murphy's, after WWII, when exports from Japan began, and trade was established between our countries. This time period, late 1940's-1950's, was the "Golden Age" of Christmas Holiday decorations. Santa has a pine cone body, hand painted clay face, chenille trim arms, fluffy white cotton beard, felt hat, spun cotton feet, mica snow glittered papier mache base. He holds an unusual blue bottle brush tree in his hand. Santa measure about 3" tall. He has an ink stamp on the bottom of the round base, "JAPAN".
