A Valentine to treasure! Clad in red with a pyramid of heart shaped delicacies, reminiscent of the elaborate dessert pyramids of the 18th-century, and wearing a white hat with a pattern inspired by the border of an early 19th-century coverlet; this delightful Santa figure is made from an antique chocolate mold in the Vaillancourt collection.
