Description

Chalkware 9.5 in
Made in United States (2011)
Seasons: Winter
Year Issued: 2011 at $140.00, for Colonial Williamsburg

Vaillancourt Santas make a lovely keepsake that you’ll look forward to displaying each holiday season. This particular chalkware collectible wears a green cloak with reindeer and evergreen branches “cross stitched” around the hems. Slung over his shoulder is a green bag that’s undoubtedly full of toys. The painted pattern around the bottom of the coat is inspired by needlework samplers found in The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation Collections. The samplers were made by young girls as a means of teaching them sewing skills.
