This is an Original Rushton Atlanta GA Santa Claus. He is in very good vintage condition.
There are no tears or stains to his fabric or accessories that I could find. Other than typical age progression which would prove he is not a reproduction, I would consider him to be as fine as possible without being NOS. He could stand a drycleaning if you wanted to brighten him up, but I have just damp cloth cleaned him each year when and if necessary. He is a great example of the typically sought Santa, perfect height, 36" as is, and about 40" if you include his hat upright.He has the desirable rubber face which still maintains its vibrant colors and the "jolly" santa with the "twinkle in the eye" expression, and has the sought after "black boots". I do not see any repairs. He appears to be in original condition. I acquired him in Georgia at an estate sale, and we enjoyed him for many years each Christmas. No children at home anymore, I have since moved to Florida and royally downsizing, so he is looking for a new loving and caring home.
He will also be enjoyed, as I used him some years, for Christmas display at a commercial business. Because of his size, he makes a wonderful statement in a large house or retail business for the Holidays.
