WONDERFUL VINTAGE VELCO PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY SANTA BOY PLANTER / CANDY CONTAINER FIGURINE. What a lovely old Holiday decoration. 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, Art Ceramics, 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. Our little Christmas boy, dressed in his Santa suit, holds a gaily wrapped Christmas package in one hand, holds an open sack over his back in the other hand, which can be used as a planter, or candy container. The Christmas Santa boy is in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. Again, he can be used as a festive Holiday planter, for small cut flowers, or as a candy container. He measures about 5" tall, has the original black and gold paper tag, "VELCO JAPAN", and has an ink stamp number, "4088S VELCO". He would have been imported to the U.S. for sale in specialty stores across the country. For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site. What a great addition for your Birthday Angel, Christmas Holiday collection!!!!!
