Complete Set Of 9 Vintage Lighted Santa’s Reindeer Lawn Ornaments Blow Mold:
I have a set of 9 vintage reindeer outdoor lawn / yard ornaments that I don’t know much about. They look like they could be from the 1950’s – maybe earlier? There is Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and of course Rudolph with his red nose. I could not find a company or any information printed or stamped on these. They are a hard plastic – could be what is called Blow Mold – but it has a heavier feel and look to them. Each one weighs about 5-6 pounds. Each reindeer is hollow inside and their heads come off – these is where the light string with bulb is placed. Each head looks like it twisted and locked in to place or had small screws that tightened to keep in place at one point…but most are either taped together or just placed together now. The previous owner did duct tape some together (there is residual tape glue on some of the necks). He also did not have the lights working for many years…but I do have most of the original light cords inside each deer. There is a hole underneath each deer where I think you would run the cords and/or lights. There is also another small hole underneath where a metal stick/stand was inserted to prop these up in your yard. Some are still attached but most are missing. Rudolph still has his red bulb for a nose. 8 of the reindeer have all the antlers still intact and never broken and Rudolph has a baby set of antlers. Each reindeer has accumulated a layer of dirt over the years (and maybe some white paint dots), there are spots that have paint wear or small scratches, but I would consider these in very, very good condition for their age. They are all original and other than the neck issues, nothing is broken or cracked through and it has all of its original paint. These do need a good cleaning which I will leave to the winning buyer. Each reindeer measures approximately 38” long x 15” high x 6” wide. I am including a flat fee for shipping (I will pay any additional costs for shipping) which includes insurance and tracking information. They will be shipped in 3 to 6 boxes – I want to make sure the boxes aren’t packed too tight and/or too heavy. However, due to the size of the packaging I will have to use – UPS will charge me for dimensional weight and USPS will charge me for oversize packaging…that is why the shipping charges are high. I am estimating the shipping total to be $300-$400. If I am incorrect with my calculations and there is an overpayment, I WILL refund any excess shipping charges paid. These are just so adorable and will make a great addition to any home for Christmas.
Please email me with any questions or if you need any additional photos. I tried to describe these as best as I could and hope the pictures show you the condition as described.
GOOD LUCK and THANKS FOR LOOKING!On May-05-13 at 17:26:35 PDT, seller added the following information:
I was just informed that these may be manufactured by MOLD CRAFT. I looked at a few of the deer and was able to find "© 1958" stamped on the bellies. A couple of them also had "II" in a raised stamp above the year. I will check each one tomorrow and include that information and a picture in the description.
