This very hard-to-find set features Santa Claus riding a gilt-trimmed sleigh that's a candy dish/planter, pulled by two red-nosed reindeer who are candle holders. The reindeer have gold starry eyes and gold atomic stars on their bodies. All are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and little to no paint loss. The only flaw I see is a flake or small chip on the rim of the sleigh, near the back corner behind Santa's right side. Sorry, it doesn't show up well in my photos; it looks like it might have glaze over it so it could be a manufacturing defect.
Santa has holes in his gloves for string reins that I believe originally came with the set but are no longer there. The sleigh measures about 4 by 4 inches and the deer measure about 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches tall. Please see photos and thanks for looking!
