Vaillancourt Folk Art Original American Chalkware Santa Claus Grolier 1988 Ltd For Sale
Up for sale isthis 1988 Vaillancourt Folk Art Original Created for Grolier Collectibles, LTD, Limited Edition American Santa Claus Chalkware Figure.
In 1988 when Vaillancourt created this figurine, only 1500 were originally made and the pieces were commissioned exclusively for Grolier for one year. Later, Grolier gave Vaillancourt Folk Art permission to create 100 additional pieces and the limited edition grew to 1600.
This Santa is #1416 out or the original 1500.
He was designed by Anton Reiche (Dresden, Germany) and features a ruddy jolly face and is holding a sack of toys in his arm.
His cloths are sooty and he is resting on what appears to be a tree stump.
He is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, scratches, color loss or damage of any kind and measures 9 1/4" tall.
The base is hand signed, "A Vaillancourt Folk Art original created for Grolier Collectibles Ltd, 1416/1500, Sutton, Mass, C.1988 all rights reserved.
Retail, (although I have searched both Vaillancourt and many other online stores and everyone is sold out) on this Santa is $1000.00
I am offering it at a portion of that price in the off season hoping to give someone the great opportunity to own this wonderful collectible. Make me an offer!
