Circa: 1950 Country of Origin: Germany Manufacturer: Mid Century West German Import
A very nice example of post-war Western Germany figural glass ornaments, this 4-1/2 inch silvered Santa Claus has a realistic look with well-painted flesh tone face and long lashed blue eye decals. The fur trim of his bright red coat is coated in white mica glitter, but the white painted beard is unglittered, another sign of care taken in decoration. Santa carries a green pine or feather tree in his arms, it's either lightly painted or the green has faded somewhat over the years. The metal cap is marked West Germany. Excellent condition with no damage and none of the usual flaking of the face paint.
