This sweet Russian Santa Claus has a lovely hand painted cloak that is dark red or burgundy with gold edging and pattern. The scene on the front of his cloak depicts a Traditional Russian Troika (three horse sleigh) driven by a young man sweeping up his Sweetheart as he dashes through the snow! Santa is holding up a Golden Bell in one hand and a painted staff in the other (see close up pictures below.) This Santa is very lightly lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved.Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Note: These are not mass produced molded resin from China. All our Russian Santas are one of a kind, unique, and hand carved from Linden Wood so no two Santas are ever identical.) This Grandfather Frost, as he is called in Russia, is made in Sergei Posad, Russia and is signed by the artist. This nice sized Santa measures just over 8.25 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide.
