Folk Art
German Belsnickle
Catalog S207; $75.00

Bring a piece of New England folk art into your home for the holidays with this handcrafted Yelloware Santa. This wonderful Santa figure was inspired by Early American Yellowware, handcrafted 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 the German tradition of folk art chalkware with the warmth and charm of antique yelloware from early American colonial days and offers a unique, handcrafted treasure that will last a lifetime.

Offered here is a Bittersweet House Folk Art Yelloware Chalkware Belsnickle Santa Claus . The Santa figure was cast using a wonderful highly detailed antique German chocolate mold and is handpainted with my Signature Yelloware finish. The piece is then glazed, antiqued and polished to give it the beautiful appearance of an early Yelloware pottery bowl. The Yelloware Santa displays beautifully with Redware, Spongeware, Salt Glaze Pottery or Pfaltzgraff America.
This absolutely charming Santa figure, measuring 8 inches, is signed and dated.
