WONDERFUL VINTAGE LEFTON PORCELAIN, DECEMBER BIRTHDAY, CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY BOY FIGURINE. What a lovely old Holiday decoration. Rare to find boy figurines these days, especially getting dressed up as Santa Claus!!! Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday and decorative Angel and pixie figurines during the 1940's-1960's, along with Lefton, Inarco, Napco and other factories of that time. It was considered the "Golden Age" of ceramic and porcelain Holiday decorations, for pieces such as these! Beautiful detailing into the cast porcelain mold. Rich, hand painted coloration of our little boy, Santa hat on his head, slipping on a Santa coat, bag of Holiday goodies at his side, gold lettering, "DECEMBER", on the base. The December boy is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. He measures about 4 7/8" tall. He has the original red and gold paper tag on the bottom,"LEFTON'S EXCLUSIVES JAPAN REG U.S. PAT OFF", and is numbered, ink stamp, "2300". He would have been produced in Japan, and imported to the U.S. for sale in specialty stores across the country.
