What is unusual is that he is trimmed in a black faux fur along with black boots.

His beard is made out of twisted white cotton strands.  Detailed hand painted face with brown eyes and rosy cheeks.  The sack is made of burlap tied up with jute and accented with a gold color French Horn.

Santa did not always wear the red costume with white trim that is popular today.  Earlier  costumes included  purple and white, and red and black.  Knickerbockers on Santa were popular in the 1920s and the red and white outfit caught on in the late 1930s and 1940s.
