Excellent condition, original "grass". 8" long, 7-1/4" tall.

This is a great example of how the company made parts interchangeable so they could create new items by joining together a seemingly endless selection of rabbits, ducks, roosters, chicks, etc. Circa 1950.

Full sheet of unusually large vintage German diecut Santas carrying toys. Two of the Santas wear the harder to find blue robe. The colors are gorgeous and this sheet would look terrific framed. Each Santa Claus measures 9-1/4" tall--an unusually large size.

The assortment of toys is wonderful--nutcrackers, racecars, dice, dolls, airplanes, books and toy horses.

The tabs are marked "Printed In Germany", "PBZ" and "1211". The printer was the Paul B. Zoecke company which was founded in Berlin in 1896.

The two blue Santas are duplicates and two of the red Santas are duplicates (the red Santa to the far right is different.) The full sheet measures 9-1/4" x 13-1/2".

Condition is excellent. Two of the Santas have a slight crease.

Excellent vintage celluloid Christmas light in the form of Santa Claus carrying a pack of toys. Celluloid lights are very difficult to find because they were so brittle and flamable. They were made ca. 1915-25.

This one is in remarkable condition, in virtually mint condition. There are no splits, dents, burns or melts! The 3.5 volt bulb tests as non-working with a continuity tester (celluloid lights should never be tested with a 9-v battery). 3-3/4" tall.

This is as nice an example as you will ever find of a rare celluloid light!
