Antique 1800’s German Santa Claus Candy Container

Just when it seemed too close to Christmas to find any truly Vintage Treasures, this one is on the shelf at Tons of Treasures in Laguna Hills.  It may not be there for very long.  Check my ebay listing for the auction!  He stands about 17″ tall and is holding a vintage feather Christmas tree.  His outfit is original and made of red wool felt trimmed in aged white fur.  His flannel pants are made of blue fabric and his boots are paper mache like his hands and face.  HIs beard and hair are made of real rabbit fur.  Inside, his cardboard container is in tact.  His paper belt is so brittle, that it was covered with a piece of seam binding years ago.  Inside the feather tree, you will see the original gold braid trim and a tiny swan toy hanging near the bottom branch!
