His Pedigree: Originally designed by Foote, Cone and Belding advertising agency for the Marshall Fields Department Store in Chicago for the store's annual Christmas display. In 1946, Marshall Fields introduced Uncle Mistletoe to compete with Montgomery Ward's creation, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.In 1948, Uncle Mistletoe was a 12-inch puppet dressed in a costume resembling an English coachman who assisted Santa Claus with his business matters. He lived with the inhabitants of Candy Cane Lane, a magical world where "dreams come true." The popularity of Uncle Mistletoe soared, and was soon turned into a tri-weekly television program entitled "The Adventures of Uncle Mistletoe," which lasted for four seasons. You can still see him on the top of "The Great Tree" in the Walnut Room.
The original Uncle M comes with the mark "Uncle Mistletoe Cookie Jar Pat D 150028". He is 12" high. And his wings are folded neatly BEHIND his back. He has no chips or cracks. He has a tiny line of pottery glaze "crazing" right above his forehead which is only noticeable on close inspection which is due to the age of the glaze, but is NOT a crack in the pottery. We want to be as up front as possible about the details.
