Santa Claus figure wearing a burgundy coat.Vintage inspired Christmas decoration.

I made Santa's face with polymer clay and a chenille beard,recycled felt cloth coat and hat trimmed in chenille.His body is wire and cotton.I constructed my Santa with the same type of materials and with the same methods as original Japanese and German Santas of this type from early 1900s through 1930s.

Approx.6in.tall.

Antique originals had clay,plaster,or papermache faces.Their suits were made of flannel,felt,
or cotton batting.This type was made with a paper or cloth wrapped wire, or a string loop for hanging on a tree, with or without an ornament hook.

I construct my ornaments from antique,vintage and distressed materials,when available,for an aged look.I want them to appear as if they have survived 100 or more Christmases.Because of this,there will be minor imperfections,all of which are desirable because they add warmth and patina to the ornament.For example:minor creasing,yellowing of cotton batting and chenille,age darkened or slghtly faded crepe paper and scraps,arnished tinsel,etc.

The Santa Claus we know and love today is different from the Old World Santa of Europe.He was usually depicted as a thin,and often somewhat stern old gentleman,wearing long robes and coats.These traditional depictions of Santa were brought over to the USA by immigrants.Between Word War I and World War II,Santa began to take on the persona of the fat,jolly old elf of Clement Moore's,A Visit From Santa Claus ~ The Night Before C
