This wonderful red chenille Santa Claus figure ornament was made in Occupied Japan between 1946 and 1951. About 5-1/2 inches long with legs slightly bent, he has an expressive molded, hand painted clay face, real cotton beard, and holds a green chenille tree in one hand. The original paper Made In Occupied Japan is still attached to the top of the Santa. The green tree is slightly faded. In very good vintage condition, guaranteed original and authentic.
