Hand crafted Folk art Chalkware Santa by New England artist Kathryn Campbell of Bittersweet House Folk Art.

Of special note: Cast in chalkware using a wonderful chocolate candy mold, measuring approx 5- 1/4 inches. The Santa is painted with a muted turquoise that has been antiqued to provide a warm, primitive patina; fanciful Gold Snowflakes complete the design and the hat is trimmed with feather tree and holly berries. The piece is set off with crystals of sparkling diamond dust. The design was created to complement collections of paper/papier mache Santa candy containers. The Santa figure will be dated, numbered, and hand signed " Bittersweet House Folk Art, Kathryn Campbell, Sherborn, MA".
