1930s Celluloid Clockwork Santa Claus. Head Moves With Counter Balance. Japan For Sale
Early 1930s Celluloid Santa with Clockwork Balance.
Head moves from left to right, on lead counter balance in back.
Earlier celluloid toy from Japan.
Blue tin bottom, with tin tube in a celluloid body of Santa Claus is molded.
Then the head has a rubber band which fits inside tube, and head fits on top tin balance.
Then a long leaded weighted counter balance so it moves back and forth.
The head is celluloid also.
The rubber band is intact after all these years (but is petrified) so he moves.. not as he did in earlier years.
I never changed band inside as I just wanted to leave it as it is.
Original from the day it was manufactured.
Head is wonderful, as it is such a gentle face, with great smile and details.
He is carrying a green bag over his shoulders.
The lantern is a wonderful touch as well.
Black boots at the bottom.
There is nothing wrong with this Santa Claus toy. I start all my sales at .99 cents as it is an sale and I just never cared when I went to live sale and the saleeer started very high, and then spent time backing down to get a offer.
I am more than happy to combine postage to save money on multiple items.
Just let me know you are multiple offerding, and I will invoice you when you are finished offerding and wish for me to send the items. Then, I will combine postage and send to you, and send final invoice. If any questions about this, please email me.
