Advent Calendar: Tomte with Illuminated Window

Advent Calendar: Tomte with Illuminated Window

  • 625

This Advent Calendar, from our Nordic Tomten Collection by artist Eva Melhuish, stands apart from the others in the collection, which mostly are deep shades of nighttime blue: this one is all red and warm colors, as our friendly Tomte carries a parcel past a brightly illuminated window. So beautiful! 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".
