This Santa Claus ornament or figurine was issued as part of the Memories of Santa Collection created by the late Don Warning. The collection was inspired by the evolving depiction of Santa through the years, beginning with the etchings that accompanied Clement Moore's 1840 classic, A Visit From Saint Nicholas. The pieces were five inches tall, made of a form of earthenware, and hand painted. Warning issued 139 different Santas (including variations) between 1983 to 2002. They had a gold string on top for hanging, but buyers often cut it off and displayed the Santa on a shelf.

This is the 1902 Santa, inspired by the French St. Nicholas, Pere Noel. It was introduced in 1988. It does not have the string on top or the box, and has slight evidence of wear and little paint loss, but it is in very good condition, with no cracks, chips, or other damage, and is nicely hand painted.
