What a great find, a very old hand crafted German papier mache boy doll on a wood sled. This antique two piece Christmas candy container is in fabulous condition! Wow! Free Shipping!

Sweets for children at Christmastime have always been an important part of holiday celebrations. The highly collectible antique German candy container grew out of the German toy industry in the 1880s. These hand crafted papier mache composition forms were quite elaborate, almost like dolls in appearance. Once emptied of candy, these beautiful containers might be saved as ornaments or decorations for years to come. Others became toys that were used in play. Yet many were destroyed in the opening process, or simply thrown away once their contents were consumed. Thus, they are quite rare and hard to find. Here we offer a rare antique German figural candy container and we are so excited to have him in our store!

He is in amazing condition, especially for his age at over 130 years old. It is similar to the Heubach style with papier mache head and hands. The arms are jointed and movable. He is simply adorable, with a sweet, hand painted face featuring rosy cheeks and a lovely cherub-child expression, done so well by the Germans. He wears a great little two-piece ivory color wool snow suit with a matching removable hat. The coat cuffs and hat edge are accented with colorful braided trim. The same trim makes up his scarf and shoes. There is so much fine detail to this wonderful gem! The top of the body comes off of the wood sled to reveal the cardboard container. The container is super clean as if never used. Antique paper which is printed with German text (in that classic old Gothic font!) wraps around the top of the container tube, which you can see when you lift the coat. Please see all of the detail photos of this special antique German papier mache child doll candy container to appreciate how unique and special it is.

The assembled container measures 4.5 inches tall and is in excellent condition with no damage, tears, chips, candy residue, or odors. The wool snow suit has a couple of small spots, but they are very minor.

We can't say enough about this antique German papier mache boy child doll on sled Christmas candy container. He's very special; this type is a rare find. Take him home to proudly display amongst your antique Christmas decorations and to enjoy for years to come.
