Early Olde Santa
Claus & Elmer his Reindeer
Appalachian folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
Thank you for stopping by. Santa is so primitive with
vintage button eyes, stitched thread over nose. His hair is
sheep's wool and his beard and moustache is made from early 1900's
cotton seed batting. He has a wee little mouth with teeth.
His hat is grungy red linen with a rusty bell on the tip. He
wears a shirt and trousers. Down the center of his shirt are
stitched on X's for buttons. He wears a wool coat with a
pocket stitched on filled with real pine.
Elmer has a stitched on eye, tiny thread mouth. He has
painted on black hooves, a wool blanket and a blue ticking tail.
He has a real stick for an antler.
Santa is made from a design by Pine Berry Lane and is a big fellow
measuring 26" tall,
stuffed with rags for that wonderful prim feel. He can
either hang or sit. Elmer is around 9" in width.
God bless you.
