Vintage French Santon pair of figurines, a country french mademoiselle and her wine toting husband. Dating from the mid 1970s when they were purchased in Provence, these immensely popular figures add a French flair to your rustic or country decor.

These hand painted figurines, originally meant for Christmas creches, originated in Provence and are now used as decorations for all seasons. The woman, whose expressive face is quite detailed, is wearing traditional Provencal dress with a lacy cap and shawl of typical french design. Under her apron and dress, she is wearing pantaloons and a slip. She is holding a terra cotta basket of eggs with a wire handle, and a realistically painted chicken. Her gentleman friend is wearing a jaunty red felt hat and is cradling a bottle of wine. He is attired in typical french vest, polka dot shirt and corduroy pants.

Both figures are standing on a slice of wood with the bark intact and have the name of the painter, (partly illegible - Sylvestie Amy) on the wood bases.

Size: Each is 10 inches tall

Condition: Fabric is in very good shape. No nicks or cracks to terra cotta. Very good overall condition, have been stored away for years.

Will ship carefully wrapped and insured. Shipping charges more than $2 above actual cost refunded to buyer. To see my other items, please click here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OneFairfaxRoad?ref=si_shop
