Christopher Radko 4 Foot Santa Claus Figure. This came from the Christopher Radko Library collection.
I acquired a lotof Christopher radko and discovered that it is in fact from his library. I have documentation stating such. Im 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. He is 4 tall and absolutely beautiful to look at. There isnt any cracks, chips, or paint flaking. So just an FYI, santa comes just as pictured. This item will be listed on Christopher Radko Facebook pages also so if you are a collector and dont want to miss this you might want to jump on it. There were between 250 and 300 of these produced nearly 20 years ago.
Price is not negotiable as he is a library piece and you wont see him come up for sale anywhere else. The only things included in the pictures are the Santa. For those who dont 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. 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 seriess. 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?
