Antique/vintage Spun Cotton Santa W/sleigh Candy Container + Celluloid Reindeer For Sale

Antique/vintage Spun Cotton Santa W/sleigh Candy Container + Celluloid Reindeer

This is an antique/vintage spun cotton Santa and sleigh candy container with toys in the basket and a celluloid reindeer. I consider it to be in very good vintage condition. The sleigh or sled measures 4 5/8" in length, 2.25" in width, and 3" in height to the top of Santa's head. The spun cotton Santa with composition face is in excellent condition and is permanently affixed to his seat. He measures 1.75" in height in the seated position, 1 1/8" in width, and 1" in depth. The sleigh is a combination (I think) of wood and rolled paper. It is painted white with traces of blue. The natural woven basket which sits on top of the sled is in perfect condition, as seen from above in picture 8. The basket is the candy container. It measures 2.25" in length, 1 5/8" in width, and 1 1/8" in height. For fun I have added some things to the basket, which are included in the sale. They are loose, and can be removed. There is a bottle brush tree which is 2.25" in height. There is a bisque Frozen Charlotte doll which is 2 1/8" in height, a tiny wooden "Express" sled which is 1.5" in length, and a bunch of sugared millinery fruit. These pieces are all vintage (picture 9). The bottom of the sleigh is shown in picture 7. You can see the "Made in Japan" oval stamp in black ink. The piece of cord that you see is how the basket attaches to the sled. The sled looks crooked in some of the pictures, and it was made that way. It is not wobbly at all. I think the crookedness adds to its charm. Keep in mind that this was a dime store toy that sold for a few cents. The reindeer is in perfect condition. He stands on his own, but he likes it better if he can gently lean on something like the sled, as in picture 1. Pictures 10 & 11 show him standing on his own. He measures 3.25" in length, 1 1/8" in width, and 3.25" in height to the top of the antlers. His red color coordinates perfectly with Santa's suit. Picture 12 shows the embossed "Japan" on his underside. This is a wonderful little collection. I am offering it at a reasonable Starting Price with . I have other sales, and am always happy to combine shipping for multiple purchases. International buyers are welcome. I ship Worldwide, including Canada. Feel free to email me with any questions.
