With a shape created using an antique pewter ice cream mould, this European Father Christmas is grand in both style, shape, and coloration. In addition to the traditional colors (and detailed beading to highlight its coat), this Father Christmas holds a replica vintage bottle brush tree and has two teddy bears along for the ride—in the back sack, next to one of the teddy bears, is a chalkware tree decorated for the season.
