Santa Christmas ornament – Jingle bells

Santa is the key here — you wind him up to turn on the tune, which appropriately is “Jingle Bells. ” Pictured below, he stands in a circle of brass bells atop a brocade and velvet ribbon- covered ball. A “gilded” three-legged stand permits the ball to be used as a decorative table ornament. It is 6-1/2 inches tall. Without stand, the ball can hang on your Christmas tree.
