Boston Common at Twilight (1885-86) by American artist, Childe Hassam (1859-1935)

The soothing effects of dusk on freshly fallen snow are juxtaposed with Boston’s busy streets in the beloved painting by Hassam. This image adorns the coat of this chalkware Santa that was created by Judi Vaillancourt originally for the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Handcrafted in Massachusetts using a vintage chocolate mold, each Santa is then decorated using a combination of decoupage and hand painting to create an heirloom-quality keepsake you’re sure to delight in each holiday season.
