WONDERFUL VINTAGE HOLT HOWARD PORCELAIN, CHRISTMAS SANTA CLAUS IN HIS CAR CANDLE HOLDERS. What great old Christmas Holiday decorations. Many ceramic companies produced a full line of Holiday, Birthday, Angel and pixie figurines during this time period. Christmas ceramic and porcelain figurines such as these were sold in the local five and dime stores, from small towns to large metro cities after WWII, when exports from Japan began and trade was established again with the U.S. That would have been late 1940's, into the 1950's....the "Golden Age" of Christmas ceramics. Rich, vibrant coloration. Beautiful detailing into the molds, Santa in his car, the back seat area is the candle holder, will hold a standard size taper. The Santa candle holders are in very good vintage condition, free of chips or cracks, as shown in the photos. They measures about 3 1/4" long, 3 1/4" tall. There is the original red and gold paper sticker, "HH JAPAN", and an ink stamp, "HOLT HOWARD 1959".
