This Napco ceramic Christmas planter features a charming curly-bearded, long eyelashed Santa Claus holding a pear tree with a red partridge bird at the top. The toy sack slung over his other shoulder forms the planter opening at the back. About 6-1/2 inches high, the planter is filled with plastic pine bough greenery which can be removed and replaced with your own if desired. There's a little crazing to the white back and a couple of tiny pindot paint flecks to the lower edges of the black boots and a couple of the pears.
