This metal Christmas reindeer sculpture is in good condition for its age. It was created to hold burning candles, but there is no trace of melted or unmelted candle wax on it. It seems as if it was created and put away or lost in storage many years ago. (Size: Hight-24 Length-18 Wide-2)
To my knowledge, this sculpture has never been exhibited and may have been in storage for many years. This sculpture was purchased in a small shop located in a small college town in the USA. If you need more photos I will return to the storage and take them at your request.
