We believe in quality. We believe in tradition. At Vaillancourt Folk Art, we don’t believe in these things simply because we are a family-ownedAmerican small business; we believe in them because, for over 30 years, we’ve seen the reaction, appreciation, and expectation of collectors from around the world. Vaillancourt Chalkware is a fine art quality collectible that is hand painted in our Sutton, MA studios. With a passion for history, antiques, and Christmas, our Chalkware Santas (and other holiday figures) are certain to inspire.

It’s hard to tell when a tradition begins…

When German immigrants from the Rhineland came to the Pennsylvania area in the 18th century, they brought along their Christmas traditions of the Christmas tree, exchanging gifts and folk lore including “Pelznickel” or fur clad Nicholas.

Walking Stick Father Christmas in Silver

Walking Stick Father Christmas in Silver: The Walking Stick Father Christmas in Silver features a brilliantly shimmering Father Christmas designed with silver leafing and painted with a familiar holly and ivy simple pattern. Originally created as an exclusive for Bergdorf Goodman, the premier numbers of this piece were held until this year. Apart from the luminous coat, within this Father Christmas' red bag are packages wrapped in beautiful silver and purple--he must have completed his shopping in NYC this season.
