This enchanting hand painted Russian Santa Claus makes a wonderful Christmas gift - especially for fans of The Nutcracker Ballet. This Santa has a bright red cloak with white and gold highlighting - notice the way the cloak is painted to look like delicate folds in the cloth. The front of Santa's cloak has a scene from the iconic Russian Nutcracker ballet - Herr Drosselmeyer is standing over Clara and Fritz as they stare in wonder at the toy castle while the little Nutcracker doll looks on. Santa is holding a staff in one hand and a little Nutcracker soldier 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. (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. This Santa is signed by the artist and measures just over 11 inches tall by 5.75 inches wide.
