Hand Painted Holiday Tole Santa Claus: SOLD
This 21" tall hand painted tole figure is a Holiday Santa Claus dressed
in a full length black gown, a full length red robe, and red hat.
The gown is trimmed in red and
gold at the bottom, and green, red, and gold at chest level. A big belt
buckle is seen peeking out from the red robe, and a large timepiece hangs
below the belt. The hand painted robe is lined in
leopard spotted painted fur and trimmed in black with round gold painted on beads. The Santa
Claus is carrying an unadorned Christmas tree in his toy bay, which is
slung over his shoulder. In Santa's robe is a large pocket containing toys:
a teddy bear, toy horn, and candy canes.
The face of Santa Claus is painted with kind eyes and a compassionate expressio.
Wire rimmed glasses are painted on the tip of his nose. The
white beard is the one part of this Holiday Santa Claus that has
a 3-dimensional material: a thickened white gel that gives dimension
to Santa Claus' beard.
This holiday Christmas Santa Claus is made of wood, hand painted with acrylic paints,
and fully varnished to
keep the colors bright and fresh. He stands upright on a raised stand with
a green faux marble painted top and a spotted bottom that mimics
the painted leopard fur on Santa Claus' red robe.
This tole Santa Claus ships cushioned with bubblewrap in a no-bend cardboard box.
