Large Vintage Animated Santa Light Up Bell Ringing Battery Operated 1950s Tin with Rubber Face


A vintage battery operated animated Santa Claus rings bell and moves side to side. Needs 2 size DD batteries (Not Included).

Santa stands about 18.5" tall. He is tin with rubber face wearing traditional red and white suit with black belt and gold toned metal bell in his right hand. When turned on with the switch on his back his eyes light up and he moves side to side while swinging the bell. Copy the link below to view a video of him in action.

He needs a gentle push on his right shoulder to keep going or get started as I did in the video. Otherwise he is in good shape but does have obvious soiling of his clothes and white beard, as well as buckle and bell finish wear.

I saw another one of these sell (it had original box) that they said was noted to be a store display due to the size, promoting smaller versions that were for sale. So it is possible that that is what it was intended for.
