Antique German Snow Baby Santa Carrying A Lantern Pic 13.141a For Sale
This is a small Santa, just about 2" tall, made by Hertwig in the mid 1920s to late 30s. Santa carries a yellow lantern and carries a pack of presents.
This particular Santa will need a little help to stand. there is something like a residual bit of excess porcelain on the bottom of his right foot which makes him tippy (not tipsy.) A tiny bit of museum putty or even clay or wax will fix him up. He has been handled quite a bit in his history. There are no signs of his being washed, but some paint on high places has been rubbed off by admirers. There are no chips or repairs though.
