After a short break, we're back with new items, which we'll be selling in conjunction with our mother's various collections, including Erzgebirge Folk Art.

"I've spent years sourcing both prewar and post war wooden items from the Erzgebirge region of Germany, an area that was part of the old GDR/East Germany, (German Democratic Republic), where in spite of the hardships experienced until unification in 1990, cottage industries continued to produce traditional wooden toys, figurines and religious folk art products. Original vintage pieces are becoming harder to find, but when I do come across them, I derive great satisfaction from creating displays and play sets, combining items made at different times."

We are now preparing and listing items for the Christmas/Holiday season. Please visit often to view our new offerings.

This Father Christmas Santa Candy Container was made in Germany ca1930s.

Measuring 10" high, it has a composition face, spun cotton hair and beard, The body is made of sturdy cardboard with wire arms that can be adjusted, and felt-covered wooden hands. It is clothed in a red robe with white trim and a looped braid, and with a red felt hat with the same white trim. The outfit is further embellished with a looped braid around the waist.

The Santa holds a brown crepe paper bag in his right hand, a pressed cardboard sled in the left hand, and comes complete with a paper sprig mounted on a wire, allowing it to be used in a variety of ways.

The main body is hollow inside, and sits on a sturdy base.

We have combined this candy container with a selection of 10 Erzgebirge wooden toys from the 1930s, including 2 houses, 3 figures - a soldier, a man and a woman, two trees, and three animals. These will be package securely inside the container.

Gnerally in good condition, it is complete and intact throughout. The trim on the robe is somewhat discoloured after all this time, and there is a small hole in the felt at the back. However the piece displays very well, and the face has a happy, kindly expression.

The houses and larger trees in the main photo are just accessories and not included in the sale.
