Christopher Radko 4 Foot Santa Claus Figure:
Christopher Radko 4 Foot Santa Claus Figure. EXTREMELY RARE!!! Serious Collectors only!!! This came from the “Christopher Radko Library” collection. I acquired a “lot”of Christopher radko and discovered that it is in fact from his library. I have documentation stating such. I’m not just some guy with 1 piece, I have a small fraction of what used to be called the Library. And by small, I mean a fair amount. This piece has no box. When originally delivered, it came in a shipping box which is of no use anyway. The shipping box he arrived in wasn’t sound after 19 years so I rescued him from it. He is 4’ tall and absolutely beautiful to look at. There isn’t any cracks, chips, or paint flaking. So just an FYI, santa comes just as pictured. Local pick up only. This item will be listed on Christopher Radko Facebook pages also so if you are a collector and don’t want to miss this you might want to jump on it. There were between 250 and 300 of these produced nearly 20 years ago. He is Extremely Rare!!! Price is not negotiable as he is a library piece and you won’t see him come up for sale anywhere else. Local pick up only. The only things included in the pictures are the Santa. For those who don’t know what exactly the “Christopher Radko Library” is. Christopher had a designated room/area in the warehouse where he kept 6 pcs of everything he ever made. Sometimes it was 6 cases, sometimes it was 6pcs. It just kinda depended upon the piece count in the carton and what the warehouse manager grabbed to put in the collection. This ranged from samples that schaller, marolin, and German/Italian/chech ornament companies sent Christopher for design approval. Yes, he kept those as well (samples, design mach ups, and prototypes.) I have several of them. These were all kept for 2 reasons. 1 so Christopher had a collection of all his things. 2 so they could revisit items years later and tweak the design a little and remarket them. When the company sold, Christopher was stripped of his Library/archive/collection and had to leave it behind. Many Years later, the company decided to sell off the collection to make room in the warehouse. This was a big mistake!!! This collection held very first pieces in limited edition series’s. And 1 off pieces that nobody had ever seen. Now they are being introduced to the market for collectors to be able to add to their collection. This sounds to good to be true right? Well, I had the privilege of speaking with Christopher and a few people who worked closely with him during the true Radko years prior to the business being sold, and it’s been confirmed that the I have the last remaining pieces to what was the “Christopher Radko Library”.condition is “New”. Local pick up only. No returns!! No buyers remorse!!!
