Description

Chalkware 5 in
Made in United States (2007)
Seasons: Winter
Year Issued: 2007 at $275.00, for Metropolitan Museum of Art

Originally designed in 2007 for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this piece was created based off of historical postcards within the Christmas collection of the museum. Santa is riding in his Pudding Cart being pulled by two geese with guidance of their riders, the elves. The snow is embellished with Victorian glass glitter. Judi Vaillancourt created the mould for the 2007 version to retain historical accuracy to the original postcard used as inspiration.
