New Woodland Christmas Santa Claus ornament in the Old World Santa series by Thomas Kinkade with The Ashton-Drake Galleries/Bradford Exchange. Ornament measures 4 1/8" tall x 3 5/8" wide x 2" deep (10.5 x 9.2 x 5.1 cm), not including the gold-tone hanging cord.
This ornament ships with its original box. The ornament has never been displayed and was only taken briefly out of its box so that I could take pictures of it.
The old world Santa series ornament have exquisite detail and beautiful coloring. The Santa's can hang gracefully in a tree or stand dashingly on a shelf. Yes, the old world Santa ornaments are designed to be able to stand on level surfaces as shown in most of the pictures.
This ornament titled "Woodland Christmas" features Santa Claus in a older style of clothing. He's wearing baggy pink pantaloons that have gold dot accenting and a gold chain belt. There is light blue trim at the ankle and waist that matches the coloring of his hat and cape. The cape has gold trim as does his hat and both have a light dusting of glitter. He's wearing dark gloves made of the same material as his toy bag that is slung over his shoulder. The toy bag has all kinds of wonderful toys peeking from it like a horse, teddy bear, candy cane, etc. In his other hand he his holding a few toys that are on a rope.
On Santa's cape is where Kinkade's artwork is featured. It depicts a cabin in the wood during deep winter. Snow is on the ground and a small creek meanders before the cabin. On the opposite bank of the creek are two deer. The cabin is lit from within giving the artwork that "painter of light" trademark look Kinkade has.
The tag attached to the ornament states the manufacturer, series, ornament name, and the copyright year of 2003.
Makes a wonderful gift or a fantastic addition to a collection.
