Designer unknown Year of origin ca. 1930 Height 265 cm Product description Inspired by the Coca-Cola advertising the appearance of Santa Claus models has changed in first quarter of the 20th Century. Mainly for export to the U.S. Santa Claus is now designed as a chubby old man with a friendly smiling face. Painting with a bristle brush gives this Santa Claus his rustic character. The patina applied after painting reinforces this impression. At the base of the Santa Claus is an opening that allows you to hide candy and small gifts inside.

Founded in 1900, Richard Mahr of Steinach, Germany created the finely detailed papier-mâché figurines that have since become internationally known and collected. Marolin figurines are hand composed using a combination of kaolin, chalk, paper fibers, organic paste, and clay before being hand poured and painted. These figurines, not unlike Vaillancourt’s Chalkware, are known for their artistic quality and detail.
