I have up for sale a wonderful antique circa 1920s 30s time frame 12-7/8 Plaster/Chalkware Santa Claus figure. The piece is solid plaster. Its a bit heavier than the old chalkware figures from the old carnivals and such.Twenty Five years back I would see this same Santa every so often but haven't ran across one for quit a long time now. He weighs just over 3 lbs. The figure is in Excellent Condition , no damages and any wear is quite modest for an item such as this especially considering the age. It was made in the era just prior to the Rolly Polly Santa that emerged from the 40s and 50s time period.
There are no maker marks that I see. This figure is solid but back in the day I used to run across the version that was a coin bank with a slot in the area of the toys in the Santa's bag.
