Originally introduced in 1992, this Apricot Father Christmas is a smaller figure hunched over from the weight of his white sack. Painted with subtle detail, this Father Christmas is included within the Vault as it is the number 1; the first piece painted in the series. In contrast, the detail work and paint style has changed over the years as it was repainted in 2011.
