Ooak 25"artist Made Father Christmas/santa & Teddy Bear~alice Utech~fur,leather:
This is a large 25" Father Christmas, hand-made in 1995 by Alice Utech. She had her own familybusiness called Wonderland Designs, in Oconomowok, Wisconsin. Each Santa she made was hand-craftedand anoriginal design-no twoare alike. The form and base is made of solid wood, and special wire. The face is molded, specially treated and hand-painted.He is made to last a lifetime. His outfit is made of leather and fur. His accessories include a grapevine wreath, a french horn, a basket with greenery and a gingerbread man, pine roping with pinecones, a metal key,and a pocket watch. On his back, he carries a leather bag filled with sticks and a teddy bear. His beard and hair appear to made of some kind of carded wool. He has a handtag signed by the artist and his stand is wooden. He comes from a smoke-free, pet-free home. His French horn has wear on the metal, but other than that he is in fine condition. The only reason I can bear to part with him is because we down-sized into a smaller home, and I just don't have space for some of my larger treasures. I have another Alice Utech big Santa up for sale called The Fur Trader.
