German Christmas Ornament: Hand Carved Father Christmas with Sled (Weihnachtsmann mit Schlitten)
This gorgeous Father Christmas figure is carved and painted by hand, pulling a sled behind him of colorful presents. A small hand carved tree of natural unfinished wood is included, too. This piece is lovingly made by artisans of the Dregeno Cooperative in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. Perfect for your mantelpiece or on a shelf or table; not so much meant for the tree (though it will certainly rest easy across a couple of sturdy branches. The lantern dangles freely on its handle in Father Christmas's hand.
Father Christmas stands just about 4 1/2" tall. The sled, extended behind him, makes the piece over 6" wide and about 1 1/4" deep, plus the little tree, which stands about 2 1/2" tall. The hand carving of the main figure makes this piece a little more individually unique than the other handmade items we sell; expect yours to look very much like the one in the picture, but not an exact match. Made in Germany.
