This is an antique large Santa Claus figure which measures approximately 4 feet tall on its base. Obtained directly from the display manager of the late Pomeroy's Department Store at 6th & Penn Sts. in Reading, PA, it was part of the annual Christmas display there for several decades. There is no way to determine its precise age, but as shown in the photo, one exactly like it appears in the 1939 film Love Affair. As expected with an item of this vintage, there are various chips and scuffs, and a crack around the area where the detachable extended arm connects to the body, but the figure is unfaded with still vivid color and detail. I don't know what the material is. It is not plastic and seems sturdier than paper mache. A friend who works with wood believes it's some kind of composite. Note: Local pickup only.
