OOAK handmade, german style
santa. Measuring 15" tall, completely
bendable in any direction. Sitting astride a very
massive and spectacular Black Forest Bear.
 
I have been so fortunate to find
these wonderful bears. This GIRL is Massive
and absolutely gorgeous.  She is even more
beautiful than the santa on a polar
bear that recently sold of mine. She is a composite and
very, very heavy.
 
Her modelling,  wavy fur,  HUGE rump
and the way she turns his head, OH!
Look at her with Santa, the two make
such a pair, such great friends, one such
a great protector. Nothing funny is
going to happen in those woods with
this bear guiding the way!
 
Her eyes are glass, well, at least they appear to be!
Her snout is long, you just want to
pet her.
 
Santa is completely handmade. His
face has been meticulously handmolded
and hand painted. I take great time
with each face. I try hard not recreate the same
face over and over. Each face is
painted with three or four different
colors for the complexion. I use a
magnifying glass to paint the
eyes and detail around them. In fact,
this face is only about 2"
before the beard and hair and
cap.  His beard is made from that wonderful,
rare and exquisite vintage tiny curly lambswool. I was
fortunate to find a large batch of it, is just spectacular..
 
His jacket is hand dyed to get that
wonderful old vintage tomatoe red, felt.  His pants
are vintage grey felt.
 
His hands, and boots are hand molded clay.
The covering or saddle is made from an antique
crazy quilt from 1880's and is silk with embroidery,
it is stunning.  Both ends are tied with an antique
german marotte bell. 
 
Santas pack of toys consist of a Noah's ark filled
with animals and candy mold toys, a pair of antique
german doll skis, molded sheet, hand molded toys on side
an antique doll head, horn, plus one of my handmade
"chocolate molds" made from one of my antiques.
 
 
 
Attached to the bears covering
is a wonderful reproduction paper
diecut in gold
which proclaims
"Merry Christmas" to all who see this
vignette.
 
 
This is extremely large and will need a pretty good
open space to display. Finished size is
14" wide by 18" high.
 
 
Oh! before I forget, around the bears great
big neck, are antique german bells with
berries, a wonderful collar for a wonderful
bear! Bells are circa 1900 and german.
 
 
Hope you enjoy him, please
ask questions and thank you
for stopping by!
 
 
Comes signed and dated.
