Large vintage Relpo Spaghetti art Santa Claus bank
Vintage 1950s -60s Christmas Santa Claus Figurine Bank with Spaghetti Trim. I just love the happy expression on his face. Santa is jolly as he stands holding a green holly leaf with a few red berries in one hand while over his shoulder he hangs onto that that all important sack of goodies. Adorned with a gold colored belt and one gold colored button. His boots are also trimmed in gold paint.On his back, is a coin slot to use as a bank. You will need to replace the plug or stopper on the bottom. Santa stands about 6 1/2 inches tall. Book on Spaghetti Artware by Wanda Gessner lists this as made by Relpo on page 93. Most think it is made by Napco, unless both companies made it. No chips or cracks. Very minor paint loss to the red cold paint, and dispays very well. Email for more pics if you like.
