This item is based on an ancient 19th-century piece. Richly laden with gifts the felt coat dressed Santa Claus floats in a balloon through the festively decorated room. Both the ballon and the basket are made of MAROLIN papier m√¢ch√©.
Founded in 1900, Richard Mahr of Steinach, Germany created the finely detailed papier-mâché figurines that have since become internationally known and collected. Marolin figurines are hand composed using a combination of kaolin, chalk, paper fibers, organic paste, and clay before being hand poured and painted. These figurines, not unlike Vaillancourt’s Chalkware, are known for their artistic quality and detail.
