~RARE JAR ALERT!~ Not many of these were ever made but still highly sought after making the supply fall way short of the demand. I’m very proud to bring this wonderful jar to you for your consideration and ownership. The Metlox jars have some of the best detail and colors of any of the jars & more realistic than just fanciful. This Metlox Black Santa is in totally damage-free condition. I don’t believe he was ever used for other than display. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines. The only flaw I see is a speck of red paint in his beard, a factory flaw that is hardly noticeable. Quite a large jar, too! Signed in black on the bottom to say, “Original California Pottery by Metlox”. In my opinion a very attractive and interesting jar. Great holiday gift or centerpiece on your table or mantle with a wreath around him. This is one of the most difficult Metlox jars to find! A must have for any collector of jars!
