He has a Vintage and Antique Christmas Collection that is to die for. I will be listing pieces (along with stuff from his other collections) over the next couple of months, so bookmark me so you can follow what is coming up for sale. He works nicely leaning forwards and then back up straight. The motor sounds a little loud when first plugged in, but within about a minute or so it quietens down and runs smoothly and just hums slightly.
He is in excellent condition for his age, with no wear to his red velvet suit or hat and no wear to his mittened hands. The white on his suit is very slightly yellowed in areas but is not bad at all.
His boots are black hard plastic and are in good condition. He is attached by one foot onto a wooden base covered in gold glitter and mica glitter.His mohair eyebrows, mustache, hair and beard have slightly grayed over time, but are in good condition (not missing any and not raggedy). He measures 26" with his hat standing up and 21" with it bent over. His face is composition and is in good condition. The electric cord is also in good condition. Overall, just a fabulous piece of Christmas Past to add to your collection.
I have made 2 short videos of him plugged in, one where the motor is a little louder and one where it smoothes out after it has been running for a minute or two.
