I believe this guy is by Beco. He was poorly brush painted by somebody and most of his extra details were never painted. So it was fun bringing all the little details to life with more color. This is a mold that I don't own and is going to be very hard to give back!

Tom,

You have mail....

Great job on the Santa!! If he is what I think he might be then that is the first one I have ever seen and he is much more impressive then I thought he would be. I will leave it for you to see what you think before I say what my thoughts are.

Tom, This Santa was manufactured by Irwin Plastics. The year is 1967. It is 35" tall, unless they manufactured a taller version. I have always thought this was made by Beco Products. But the manufacturer name, "IRWIN", is stamped on the back of him by the hole in the photo.

He turned out down right amazing!!! 54inch tall Beco Santa!? I dont think I have actually seen him before what a wonderful piece. I would have issues letting him go back home as well.

Thank you so much! And From what I just learned he is not a Beco. I am negotiating with his owners now, but so far no such luck!

Mel thank you for your email. Well he is by NOMA I can confirm that for sure now! He truly is impressive to see, and it makes sense now because NOMA did tend to skimp on painting the extra features, I just never realized they made such huge molds!

Well your first pic looks to be this one, however the second pic looks like a much smaller Santa, this one has no makers marks.

Tom, you are welcome. NOMA had that Santa the same year(s) that they had their large candle, lamp post, choir boy & girl and the small monk & nun that we see on eBay occassionaly. They also had a 14 ½" and 17" NOEL bell at that time. Those will give you some more to look for to add to your display if you do not already have them....

Tom, Please confirm that it was manufactured by NOMA. Both of mine are marked IRWIN. Thank you! :)

Well a friend of mine sent me a NOMA catalog pic and he is identical to the catalog, and this one is not marked IRWIN.
