Painted by Judi Vaillancourt, this Big European Father Christmas is the original design for the 12060 (which was accepted into the line). Although the design is similar, this piece does not have the glimmer embellishments as the one in the line.

With a familiar European look, an antique ice cream mould was used to create the shape of this piece. With traditional colors of red and green, this Father Christmas is holding a bottle brush tree and can be seen reaching into his sack of decorated fruit. On his back is a white sack with two dolls sitting in waiting for their delivery to a young child.
