We hope that you find a rare Christmas treasure! This is an extremely impressive and complete set of early German Christmas.
Complete with a wooden slat sleigh, four beautiful reindeer, and an erect sitting belsnickle. The sizes are as follows: sleigh is 10 long x 5 ½ tall, the reindeer are 3 ½ tall x 5 long (tip to tip).
The sitting belsnickle is heavy composition, and is a very rare belsnickle style, rarely do you find composition sitting belsnickles except on rare moss pull toy sleds. This fellow is in a long red robe with white trim, a cotton beard, and carries a feather tree. He is covered in gold fleck that is actually brass, and the brass fleck has tarnished and turned black, but the gold is still strong on his sides below his waste. Santa has a flea bite on the back of his robe, and the tip of his hood is missing along with a tiny piece of white paint on his eye brow. Santa sits in a wooden German slated sled that is in great condition other than a couple of pieces of bark are missing.
The four reindeer all have two ears and two antlers. They are snow covered with metallic flecks to simulate snow reflecting off of them. They all have their harness gear, albeit, a little stiff. One fellows reins are stamped GERMANY , but you can barely make it out. One deer has a tiny divit in his rear, and all antlers have been reinforced.
This is a very impressive and wonderful early German antique Christmas piece. Happy hunting and have fun!
