Q: When my mother worked in a jewelry store in about 1949, people came from New York to decorate the store windows for Christmas. One of those folks gave her this white Santa, since they decided not to use it in the display. My mother used this Santa in her holiday decorations every year until she gave it to me a number of years ago. Now I use it in my decoration. To me, it’s priceless! My mother believes it must be worth a lot of money because it’s old. I don’t think so, but she asked me to find out. There is nothing on this Santa that identifies it — no tags, no markings, nothing. There is a hole in the bottom of one foot where it could be attached to a stand, but no identification on the stand, either. What do you think?
