Antique stuffed Santa doll - SOLD
This is another from my Dad's collection. Again - I feel the need to apologize to viewers (and a couple friends who have a really hard time with the "C" holiday and definitely don't want to see signs of it any earlier than necessary! ; ). I am painting ahead for a show. So the history of this one is that it's from the early 1900s, probably the 30s or 40s and is the middle-sized stuffed toy from a set of three. It can be found in on-line collectors catalogues. The older European dolls portrayed St. Nicholas as more of a serious taskmaster type. This stuffed toy has a painted rubber face and a plush body.
