Figure of the Week #45: Santa Claus by Crescent

Crescent 54mm Plastic Figure circa 1960s
Our latest Figure of the Week comes from Crescent, an English manufacturer of what now are vintage toy soldiers. Founded in the 20's, they initially made lead/metal soldiers. In the 50's they started making plastic figures and they were in production into the 70's. While this Santa looks like he hit some pretty rough weather over all the years of delivering toys to all those good little girls and boys he still holds the charm of a well loved toy soldier from the past and is deserving of the MichToy Santa of the Week.
