After 23 years of Collector’s Weekend Santas, this is the first year that we’ve introduced a miniature Santa on a Donkey. For 2018, this year’s piece is a limited edition of 150 and features a subtly decorated Santa riding a Donkey. The light tan Donkey is standing still while the nature-colored, fur-lined coat flows from Santa as he prepares a white sack of goodies. The mould used to create this piece is vintage and because of its delicate nature, it’s not uncommon to find black specs that seem random throughout the piece. The delicate structure of the rough canvas gives this piece an elegant, yet naturistic feel.
