Big Headed Radko Santa

Look what I ordered this week...
He's a Radko "Sleepytime Santa" salt and pepper set,
from the retired 2006 "Home for the Holidays" line.
 The cool thing about this set is
Radko's inspiration came from a 1959 design
by Holt-Howard

The Holt-Howard set is magnetic,

see the little magnet on Santa's sack?

I don't believe Radko's is magnetic,
plus he didn't keep the sack.
He opted for stacked presents.

Which adds a lot more color and interest
with all the detailed gift wrap.

Whether vintage...

or brand new

This big headed Santa
sure packs on the charm.

Radko didn't stop with just a salt and pepper shaker,
he designed a cookie jar too

with even a bigger head!

Then there's the "Sweets Platter",
It's just a massive head!

They're both very delightful...very 60's retro,
But I'm just going for the salt and pepper set.

I can hardly wait till this little guy is napping
in my Christmas hutch.

The END!

Thanks for visiting!
Happy Hunting!
