A sample from the 19th Century was the model for this vehicle. An old paper mâché-boot gets four tin wheels on wooden axes. At the toe of the boot is a small fir tree is bending in the wind. Santas beard and hair are made of sheep wool and he wears a red felt jacket while he steers the car safely through the snowy fields. On his back he carries a large sack full of presents for all the good children around the world.

About Marolin Manufaktur

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.
