Santa string - SOLD

This is my last day for the Santa series, although I will still be posting the St. Nicholas quiz on Sundays. These figures are made from what looks to be a type of pipe cleaner, with plastic heads and they're holding trees or wreaths. They are 4" high.
Notes from the collector: Definitely European. Probably vintage 30s. I love browsing antique shops. In December everything is overpriced. The rest of the year, it's in storage and it's fun to ask if they have anything. The friendly types of shop keepers will go back to their stock rooms and invariably come up with something.
6" x 8" / oil on panel / $65 / SOLD
