You are viewing a 1923 Ferdinand Strauss Santee Claus toy. It has Santa seated in the sleigh while being pulled by a team of reindeer. It measures about 11 long. The Mechanism works but needs some attention. Once it is wound, it does not work without coaxing, I can tap on the side to get it going and it will go for a bit.Or I can move a wheel and it goes, sometimes it will stop and need to be coaxed again to get going. It has a place on the front for attaching a string as well. While in motion, Santa bounces up and down as if the sleigh is bouncing while the deer are galloping through the air. The color and graphics are very vivid and in excellent condition. There is light edge wear and a few light scratches.
Santa is missing his arms and the reigns. The deer are missing their bells. Otherwise, it is in very good condition. It would make a great addition to any collection. See my other listings for more antique and collectible toys.
Please ask questions if you have any! Most of my items are vintage.
