Unexpected Beco Santa And Reindeer Ebay Win


Recommended Posts

On whim I browsed eBay tonight, and out popped the remnants of the Beco Santa sleigh and reindeer. It included the "jolly Santa and four reindeer. The reindeer were missing the antlers, but they had their mounting poles, Santa looks good but there is no sleigh. It does include the sleigh runners though.

When I came across it the bidding was only at $51.00, so I tossed out a bid and won it for a few bucks more!

I'll post some pics as soon as I pick it up. I was always interested in the set but the prices were way out of my league.

They need a good cleaning but I couldn't beat it. I'll recreate the sleigh and antlers in the meantime while I search for parts to fill in the gaps.

 

On EBay they were listed as "Santa sleigh with reindeer" with no mention of the name Beco, which is probably why there were few bidders.

 

 

Thanks for the comments and Merry Christmas to my fellow blow mold junkies!

I just researched the Beco corporation, apparently they were located a few blocks from my house on 52nd and Kolmar in Chicago.

 

The sleigh and reindeer never traveled more than a few miles in the 47 years since they were manufactured.
