Description

Chalkware 6 in
Made in United States (2011)
Seasons: Winter
Year Issued: 2011 at $150.00

Standing at about 6″ tall, this traditional American snowman was created using a contemporary New York confectionery mould. The pattern used on both the hat and scarf is often seen within classic Gingerbread decorative patterns. What makes this hand painted piece stand out the most, however, is the real lumps of coal used to make this hand painted Chalkware Snowman’s eyes and buttons.
