Vintage Hand Made Harold Gale 25 Santa Claus Store Display. This Santa was hand crafted to be used as a store display in the late 1940's. The Gales used only the finest materials with lots of hand-work in the assembling process. He has a hand painted paper mache face and is stuffed with fine grade cotton.
He is missing the belt. His faux patent leather boots with bells have a metal rod. (see photo) This would have been used as part of the mechanical display. There are no stains, rips or tears. The velvet suit may appear lighter and shinier in some areas depending on direction of the pile.
The stuffing is intact and is not deteriorating. Overall he is in Good Vintage Condition. Please check photos as they are part of the description.
