I was told that they date back to the 1920's by the family giving the estate. They have been lovingly been displayed for years by the family and stored away to enjoy again the following year, until now.
This cute couple needs a new home that will cherish them forever. Mrs Clause is 31 1/2 sitting in her rocking chair.
She wears the red gown with white and red ruffle bottom and her red slippers. The trim is a white fringe. She is missing one of her white puff balls on 1 slipper. She measures 13" wide and with the chair is 23" deep.
Santa is also 31 1/2 tall. He stands to warm his behind at the stove and is wearing his red nightshirt with red slippers and the red and white striped night cap. His beard is rolled paper.
He is also 13" wide and 12" deep. There is also the pot belly stove to warm this dear couple. The pot belly stove comes in 2 pieces. It is 25 1/2" tall and 13" in diameter when set up.The stove stands by itself, however has 1 leg that has come unglued in one side so that the leg can move. 2 legs have some damage to papier-mâché. It is sturdy for its age and will last a long time with tender loving care. These are not perfect pieces as they do show some age, but for being almost 100 years old they are in remarkable condition.
