Wonderful rare German Christmas Display with Blue Santa candy container riding in his German Horse candy container pulling an antique covered carriage with the finest of details. This display measures 23 long when hooked up to horse for display, The long wood handle can sit on horse’s back to lift carriage off the ground and it is shorter in length as seen in the photos. The German Blue coat Santa with tan pants with basket on his back and opens in center for a candy container. Santa is 6.5 and has his original feather tree, rabbit fur beard, belt, and has his original blue Germany sticker on his boot. He is in good condition, light wear, some crazing, The carriage may be a salesman sample because of the tiny detailed metal framework, tiny wired lights with mica shades and the canvas working canopy. The brown cloth liner has been replaced inside, one light had the bracket broken and wired on, one of the metal awning frame piece has broken and been wired together. At one time the lights must have worked, they have wires cut from them. It is really an unusual carriage, it measures 15 x 11 x 6.5. The horse is flocked, neck opens for candy, has crack at upper right thigh, leather reins have missing parts, chains reach the carriage perfectly to hook on. The horse measures 9.5″ x 7.5″ and has 20 written in script on the neck liner. This is a double candy container, the Santa and Horse both open. Santa stands nicely inside the carriage floor and also next to the horse & carriage for display purposes. The carriage is not marked, came from France, not sure of the maker. If you need additional photos, let me know if you have any questions. Great addition for an antique Christmas collector.
