Primitive Santa Art Doll and His Handmade Throne

A quirky little Santa is bewitchingly enthroned with a few presents at his feet and a Christmas wand in his mitted hand. A splendid addition for any Santa collector.

Inspired by a bygone era of simpler times when toys and decorations were made at home and adored generation after generation. It is our sincere hope that this truly unique creation will become a cherished family heirloom. That said, I love this piece. It's so hard to capture it's charm in just 5 photos. (I will glad send you more, if you'd like to see some of the MANY details on the throne, Felix spent a lot of time making it and it really shows).

Full of saucy charisma, Santa was hand sewn by Sara using vintage red and black Pendelton plaid wool, his face is painted and sewn to give him a jolly and well-loved appearence. His feet, mittens and face are all painted jersey cotton, made to look timeworn. His fluffy hair has also been distressed with paint to look slightly rumpled. He sits on a flat river rock, sewn inside his clothes, that ensures he keeps his balance whilst sitting. Santa flaunts a working, rusty jingle bell on a wooden stick surrounded by a spray of vintage holly. Four little mahogany 'presents' with cotton twine bows included.

Santa's Throne, built by Felix Caruthers, is merrily eccentric. He forges together a smorgasbord of hammered copper (wall sides and accent bands), hand-carved cedar (base, seat, and top) and mahogany (front centerpiece and finial), with naturally weathered pine picket fence and reclaimed green and red painted cedar slats (all around the back). The end result: enchanting. Felix has since added vintage felt feet that he screwed into the bottom, lifting the throne up just a tad, if you'd like to see photographs, please let me know.

Santa 8" in sitting position
Throne 18.5" height, 7" wide and deep
The second photo includes an apple to give a better idea of size.

Like each of our collaborations, this one is entirely made by our own hands, using reclaimed and recycled materials.
