Bring a limited edition, one of a kind piece of folk art into your home for the Christmas season with this hand crafted chalkware Santa. This wonderful piece was hand crafted using an antique German chocolate mold.
The art of molding plaster of paris, referred to as chalkware, into holiday treasures is a centuries old German tradition. Bittersweet House Folk Art brings together this German tradition with the warmth and charm of designs from early American colonial days and offers a unique, hand crafted treasure that will last a lifetime.
Of special note: Cast in chalkware using a rare German antique chocolate candy mold, measuring approximately 6 and 3/4 inches, this German belsnickle santa figure is hand painted, antiqued to reflect an aged patina and dusted with crystals of diamond dust.
