This is a rare nice vintage mechanical animated Christmas Store display. I have updated my description , I thought that the snowman was made of paper mache but it looks like some kind of plastic with a textured finish , the finish will flake off some. The bottom has a press board to support the motor and snowman , the board does have a crack in it , press board was invented in the 1950s. Snowman , electric and when you plug it in the snowman moves side to side like a seesaw , the motor does make noise , not quiet like a new animated motor , I took photos of him moving as shown. Snowman measures about 32 inches tall. He does have some wear , some chipping of paint or finish this is mostly on the bottom base , some discolor, yellowing , dust , but overall still looks good. The red mittens are made of the same fake fur as the red scarf. I added a photo of the motor base. The item “Vintage Mechanical Christmas Store Display SNOWMAN Animated Works 32 in.
