Advent Calendar: Tomte with Birds
Amongst Nordic winter's whites and grays comes a flurry of Christmas red: red berries, red-breasted robins, a Tomte dressed all in red admiring the birds, and, in the distance, a bright red home. This Advent Calendar is one of several from our Nordic Tomten Collection by artist Eva Melhuish. Tomten are old characters from Norse folklore; they are small helpers who live near farms and homes... a bit of a house gnome and a bit of Santa Claus combined. Brightened with just a hint of silvery glitter. Made in Germany by the Korsch Verlag Company; they began making Advent Calendars in Munich in 1951. About 12" x 8 1/2".
