Rare Antique 32 German Clockwork Nodder Santa Bisque Doll Store Display
Rare Museum quality large 32 Antique German bisque head Santa or Saint Nicholas Clockwork Nodder Store Display. He has wonderful blue spiral paperweight eyes. He is holding his original goose feather tree and pannier basket is strung on his rope belt and full of early German toys. The basket is in very nice condition, no damage, has a red flannel bag inside to hold toys. Santa’s bisque head has no damage, no chips, cracks, or hairlines, his nose has a slight rub. Santa is in beautiful condition, his long cream mohair coat has no holes, no stains, no smell. The key wind makes Santa’s head nod, hidden under his right arm. He appears all original with his goat skin beard, goose feather tree, rope belt with pannier basket of antique German toys that date him to 1880. Inside his neck carton is marked 76′ not sure if referring to a date? His toys are wonderfully made and very early pair of all bisque articulated Kling Dolls dressed as twins, rare Putz wooden Army of soldiers articulated on flexible base, Fur Horse w/glass eyes marked Germany, pr wooden skis and ski poles, Putz moving see saw toy with figures, articulated tin lithograph clown hanging upside down, Putz wood soldier, 2-wood decks of cards with King & Queen lithograph (match boxes), and a pair of painted lead submarines. The only wear I found on the Santa is the top of his hood shows wear from touching nodding his head and light rub to nose. He has a carton body with paper mache feet in nice condition. His head is removable and weighted and sits on top with hook to hold in place. The 15″ & 13″ dolls are not included, they show the large size of Santa or Saint Nicholas! His bisque head is what makes him rare with his character face, molded painted teeth, and expressive French blue glass paperweight eyes and furrowed brows and wrinkles! This Santa is prized by collectors of both Christmas and Dolls! The bisque Santa head is unmarked but was likely made by Cuno Otto Dressel Co, a similar character face appears as Uncle Sam and Santa with wrinkled character face and slim pointed noses as this Santa has. This Clockwork Nodder Santa was featured on the cover of “The Golden Glow Of Christmas Past”. The Clockwork Santa on the front cover is shown in red on the printed page I included. This Santa has the same bisque face with teeth and white eye bows, goat skin beard, blue glass eyes, and the same color cream mohair long coat with pale blue lined sleeves and hood. The base looks almost identical, just a couple inches shorter at 30 listed size. The goose feather tree is similar but not in the best condition, has less branches and no candle holders. This Santa has the same rope belt with tassels, but has no pannier basket for toys, the key looks slightly different. I have taken many photos of this wonderful Santa and his condition and all his parts. The large bisque head is what makes this German Santa so unusual and the quality and condition is probably the Best!

Vintage Santa Claus Department Store Christmas Display Macys Bon Marche. Santa was acquired from the sub basement of the flagship downtown Macys store in Seattle when they closed earlier this year. This flagship store was built as the Bon Marche in 1929, and its anyones guess how long this treasure was stored down there. He stands 5 feet tall, with a working light up lamp post at over 6 feet. The lamp post is plug in, the cord appears to be repaired, probably should be re wired if you plan to use it. Santa is heavy, shy of 100 lbs. He would look amazing on a porch at the holidays or in a holiday display of any kind in your home or business. This is a one of a kind opportunity to own a piece of vintage American Christmas retail history!

The store display Santa is fabulous. In working good condition with the exception of his beard has graying. I have not tried to clean but understand it can be done. Also his belt appears to be loose from his body. And he is a little soiled on the top of his cap. The Mercury Garland strand has some silver loss on a couple of beads. All in all hes a fabulous Santa Claus and will be great for your collection.

1940s-1950s Not even sure how many of these survived or existed! Stands just over 62 in tall and about 31 diameter. Folds flat, 7 pieces. Obviously has wear, not perfect but still very very cool! The tree “shelves” can have light weighted on them. Not exactly which store this came from or what it was used to display. There are areas on the underside of the largest branch shelf (lower) that does have clear tape to help hold it together. Again, this is not perfect by any means. There are tears in parts of the cardboard. For as old as it is, i would say not to bad of shape. We used this as a display in our shop. Always used and stored indoors.

He displayed them in his front window for Christmas time. I’ve had these in my possession for 24 years I’m sad to see them go but I know they are going to somebody that can enjoy them like how I did. These have been repaired over the years and are not 100% original. Santa Claus’ hat, beard and mustache have been changed. Mrs claus hair and all the white ruffle trimming on her dress as been replaced. Santa Claus has a crack on his forehead and a crack on the side of his neck up to his cheek but is hidden under his beard and hat. Clause nose broke over 27 years ago and was repaired With some sort of glue resin. At some point A long time ago the Red fabric look like it has Been Dyed red Some red transferred on to the white. Not the greatest dye job. Both they eyeglasses are not original. The Christmas sack is original but the Christmas presents. They where replaced in the early 2000. The Christmas presents are in rough condition. The presents are empty Cardboard boxes wrapped up With wrapping paper. They come with wooden boxes made out of particle board To keep them safe. For the past 15 years since we live in Florida I take the heads off for storage. I’m keep the heads under air conditioning In the house. The body’s Stay in the wooden Boxes in my garage not under air Nothing has changed with them within the last 15 years. Every year take them out of the Box and attach the heads and put them in the house greeting people who come in the house for the holidays. They definitely need some love and fixing up.

40 Mechanical Store Display. SANTA CLAUS & Mrs. Item is NOT Marked I BELIEVE it to be a Harold Gale item IF someone could confirm or deny my thoughts I would appreciate it. Both items are on one display stand. 42″ long x 19″ wide x 2.5 tall. Each figure appears to be standing on a patch of sparkly snow. Santa is 40″ tall 12″ across shoulders. Wearing his usual red garb and black boots. Claus is 37″ tall 10″ across shoulders. Wearing her red outfit with white trim. NOTICE her original plaid scarf matching her mittens. And her original draw string handbag. Item is mechanical, however at this time ONLY Santa himself has any action – he bends and leans to one side and back up again movement is fine and fairly quite. AGAIN, Ms Clause has NO ACTION I believe she had originally I have NOT had her checked out (I’m not that knowledgeable on these type of items). Other than that All fabric – belts – boots – Beard and Hair appears to be VERY CLEAN. NOTICE the photo of the Platform there are two areas on the outer front edge that has a slight bend/tear (not bad) back appears to be fine. HOWEVER, if the purchaser is going the the Columbus Ohio Holiday Show, (May 22/23rd) I would be willing to bring the item with me for you. IF the purchaser is going to the Pittsburgh Golden Glow Convention, (July 21-25th) I would be willing to bring the item with me for you. Very very impressive and ready for your display.

PLEASE view ALL the photos, they are part of the description. Remember to ZOOM in or use the Enlarger. ALL items are in a shop and available to the public.
