Hello, my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. I have gone over your photos and enlarged them, focused them and gone over the details to this piece. It looks to be German, hand carved and from circa 1920-1930s The clothes are of course newer and probably had clothes of all kinds at one point. Some families kept these Santas out on display year round and his clothes would change with the seasons. Very nice Santa has been well taken care of and in great condition. The value on him is 85.00-125.00 I can judge his size and have reviewed the photos thoroughly. Thank you for sharing this Santa.
