Vintage Holt Howard Christmas Starry Eyed Santa Candleholder Planter Mid-Century Exceptional Condition Retro
How fabulous is this Starry Eyed Santa candleholder/planter made by Holt Howard and just look at those fabulous atomic eyes!! This Santa is whimsical and ready to be cherished in your collection. There are so many details in this piece and Santa even has a little gold bell dangling off his hat as he sits holding a candleholder wrapped in his arms with green mitten hands that’s decorated with white flowers and red centers. Santa’s hat is the planter. Lots of fabulous gold sponging detail and bright colors on this piece with a glaze that is shiny. No chips or cracks that I can find. Bottom is marked © Holt-Howard 6268 Japan and the piece retains its original red and gold foil label. Measures approx.. 6 ½” inches tall by 5 ½” inches wide.
This one is in exceptional condition with minor paint wear on Santa’s back shoulder and tiny portion of the planter back top/rim (look at all the photos). A couple glaze pops and slight indentation that is under the glaze on the side of his beard. No chips, no cracks, minimal crazing This one is exceptional.
