Please Note this Sale is for Santa with moving legs, arms & head only! Really neat hand signed & dated folk art work by Chillicothe Ohio master carver Mark Glandon. Great display sized toy wooden Santa Claus with moving arms (holding cane), legs and head. This is one of the largest Santa figures we could find by the artist and the only one with as many movable parts, but there may be others. The pipe is affixed and does not appear to be removable.Largely known for his Christmas Santa figures, Mark did/does various other works like rocking horses, animals such as rabbits, birds and even a piece (Uncle Sam on a horse with an American Flag) that is in the Clinton Presidential library. We do not have extensive background information on the artist other than from online resources, but it appears Mark Glandon's works gained prominence through the years (1980's-2000's) at art, craft and folk art trade shows with people literally lining up early, just to get a chance at a piece. They are very nice solid works and have real classic folk art appeal that shows why people love them.
