Santa  &  Belsnickle


* This Old German Santa is 21 & 1/2 inches tall. His base is about 5 x 7.  It is snow covered and sprinkled with mica and glass glitter.  Oh, how it sparkles.He has a double stand so there is plenty room to place some of your collectables by him. 


* his coat is a  stripe of "olive gold green", black, and paprika. The coat is trimmed with my last piece of vintage curly wool.  Sleeves, Hem line, hood,  top of his boots and a chest piece.  The chest wrap is bottomed off with vintage marcasite buttons. Oh how I wanted to keep these.  But, they look great on this Santa.


* His face, gloved hands and boots are sculpted  made by me in paper clay.


* From under his coat sleeve, he has a natural yellowing of a white wool sweater.


* He is holding a nice size bottle brush tree with tinsel wire through it.  I put a real piece of wood on the stem.


* He has a leather rope around his waist.  He has 2 bells handing off his belt.  They ring when he walks.


* His slacks are a heavy tweed fabric. They add so much texture to  this Old World santa.


* Most of my Santas are Not made with any coat and sleeve patterns.  I just go with the flow. (They are not perfect, like you buy from mass producers.) 


* His hair and beard are from Peruvian sheep wool.


* In his leather bag, made from an old leather wallet, he has a vintage santa head pick , a USA flag, a copy of a santa chenille doll with a paper  scrap face from Germany.


* there is a wrapped gift and an antique frozen charlotte.  This frozen charlotte  is not perfect.



 * it is 160 years old. It was dug up in Germany next to the factory who produced them in 1860.


*Santa has an old key attached to his top wrap.

* He also has a piece of WV coal at his feet.  This is for somebody who has no fire in his hearth on Christmas Eve.   


* Santa can be gently moved at shoulders and elbows.  *Never at the wrist. 


* This Santa is a wonderful addition to a collector especially  because of its unique style.
