Shown are several Christmas items dating from the turn of the century until the 1930's. The book is the classic "The Night Before Christmas", and this book dates to 1898. The second photo shows the details of the cover. It has simple illustrations. The tin candy container with Santa was given away at Christmas time by department stores to customers. The Santa is lithographed on the lid. The last item is a 5" German made Santa chocolate mold with the original clips, which probably dates to the 1920's. I wonder how many Santas came out of this mold, for it is well used.
