For those with an interest in UFOs were these large 5 inch individually flashing, colored Saucers produced by NOMA Canada under their Santa-Lites brand which were outfitted with imported lamps.

VERY Nice Fred! I bet there are not too many of these lights, in the box, around. Are the bulbs C6?

They are Candelabra Base Frank. Pretty much non-existent given their very short manufacture. They have those noisy blinkers in them too which is cool. These are the only ones I have ever ran across at a show and I always wanted a set so I was REALLY happy to get them.

In Holland he arrives by ship and delivers his toys by wagon. According to Washington Irving's "Old Christmas," he could drive the wagon over the tops of trees. It was no great jump to go from a flying wagon to flying sleigh . . . .
