    Description

    Rare Boy on Skis Victorian Candy Container In near excellent condition, with his porcelain face and glass eyes adding to the detailed costume and wooden skis. The off-white scarf has some discoloration on the back, but does not distract from the container's near mint appearance. The boy separates at the waist, where the treats can be hidden in his cylinder-like middle. Clever gift of toy and sweet treat for any Victorian child. This piece would fit into any decorator's Christmas decor or even appeal to a doll collector due to its detail and execution.
