VICTORIAN REVIVAL Santa Claus Decoration/Ornament - Kris Kringle in Wool Coat
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST!
Over the years (about 30 or so) I have been collecting Vintage Christmas – all items, all designs, all ages. Of course, having grown up in the 60s I am most partial to that era. Well, it’s time to clear a little room in my condo and those items I do not think I am going to use, I am going to put up on Ruby Lane. So up now……
AGE: C.1980 or so
ITEM: This was an ornament I purchased long ago from a vendor in Los Angeles. I always meant to reproduce the ornament myself but never really got around to doing so. In a Victorian Revival manner, the face of Santa Claus or Kris Kringle is a GENUINE Victorian die cut. Santa/Kris is wrapped warmly in a cotton and wool coat andwears a hat with an embellishment of silver-blue tinsel (C.1950 I believe); his belt is of the same material. A few C.1960 Japan glass beads adorn the top of the hat while Santa's hands are tucked within the overly long sleeves of the coat. Feels like a wool covered bit of cardboard on the inside to pad the jolly fellow!
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot. A bit of the wool trim is slightly askew and there is a small dark spot in the cotton felt.
NOTE: Everything always looks better in person than in my scans/photos.
SIZE: Large at 9-1/4" high x 3-1/4" wide.
FINAL COMMENTS: Nicely made and I have kept him in good condition all the years I have had him.
FURTHER NOTE: I can put an awful lot of paper into one envelope so be assured, if you buy more than 1 piece of paper, I will adjust the postage once I receive the purchase order. And please, don’t pay until I HAVE revised the postage. Thanks.
