HEAVENLY SLEIGH-Custom One of a Kind Santa on Sleigh-COLLECTIBLE:
"HEAVENLY SLEIGH" is a one of a kind piece created by artist Karen Didion. Ms. Didion recreates the Christmas Spirit in this very special piece.
“Heavenly Sleigh” is just that. A Victorian Santa graces your home delivering as the velvet pillow in front of the sleigh states “Tidings of Comfort and Joy”. Dressed in his Victorian fur-lined tapestry coat and garland crown atop his head, Santa, in this turn of the century Victorian portrayal will be a one of a kind treasure to pass down through the family in years to come. Holding gifts of the season, amongst a myriad of garland and sugared plums and fruit, Santa readies a variety of gifts for the midnight flight, including a teddy bear, a doll with a fur trimmed velvet coat with a bejeweled pearl fur hat holding a pair of skates and a leather bound treasure chest of packages settled next to a Christmas tree sitting on the rear of Santa’s sleigh to be spread to children all over the world. Small lights reflect off of the jeweled ribbon on the sleighs runners. The hand carved wooden sleigh comes from Germany found in an antique shop and reflects hand painted scenes of castles, bridges and rivers from the Old Country. Famous for her unique and unusual renditions and figures for the holiday season, Karen Didion's talent has even been featured on the cover of the Christmas Neiman Marcus Christmas Catalog. The sleigh is 43" end to end by 17" wide and 36" at the highest point of Santa's head. The item weighs over 30 pounds. Due to the fact that this sleigh is one of a kind, we strongly recommend that this item be picked up at our location or that the buyer can arrange to have it crated and shipped in order to insure safe arrival.
