Vintage Holt Howard Christmas Santa Painter Artist Candle Holder Figurine Japan 1960s MCM
This very hard to find Santa by Holt Howard is absolutely fabulous!! Santa has the cutest jolly face with red cheeks, curly-q beard, and he is winking. He is wearing his famous red suit with Santa hat, white trim with little gold flecks, green mittens, black belt, and booties. Santa is holding a painter’s palette in one hand with different colored paints and in his other hand he is holding a paintbrush. Santa’s sack is the candle holder in the back of the figurine and it is tied with a red bow. Holt Howard sure put the just the right details on the wonderful Santa!! Santa measures approx.. 4” inches tall and retains his gold foil HH Japan label and is stamped ©1960 Holt-Howard.
Santa’s paintbrush appears to have broken at some point in his life and looks like it has been re-attached. No Chips, No Cracks, minimal age-related paint wear. Please view all photos and ask any questions. Glares from camera. This really is a wonderful Holt Howard creation from the 1960s that will add so much vintage Christmas charm to your collections and displays.
