Description

Chalkware 10 in
Made in United States (1985)
Seasons: Winter
Year Issued: 1985

This piece is a special piece for Vaillancourt Folk Art—the vintage mould was one of the first three in the Vaillancourt personal collection and was used to create one of the first chalkware santas. One year after the originals success, still with a limited mould variety, this piece was created using a cooler palate of dark blues and browns. Russian in origin, the coat and simple dot pattern represents the traditional look and feel of an European Father Christmas.

This piece has been re-issued for our 30th anniversary in 2014, with only 30 having been made available.
