Offered for sale a rare and unusual vintage Christmas Figural Set from my collection. The Santa Sleigh and Eight Reindeer are hand painted from Japan. The Japan sticker my indicate that this collectible was made by Murray Kreiss & Sons Co. A company founded in 1939. I was never able to verify that fact for I could not find a similar set.
I did find however in a collectors catalogue that that sticker was used by the Kreiss Co. The Santa & Sled measure 4 inches long, 2 1/2 high and 2 inches wide. The 8 reindeer are 2 1/2 high x 1 1/2 x 2. As you can see from the photo there is a minor leg repair on 2 reindeer but the repairs are good and the reindeer stand properly (see photo of all reindeer standing).
