£95.00

Handmade fabric Santa Claus decoration dressed as St Nicholas. This is the saint about whom, in Europe, the tradition of Santa Claus or Father Christmas evolved.  Although made of fabric he is able to stand unaided with careful balancing. He is helped in this by the use of his full sack in one hand and staff in the other. Alternatively he could be made to stand with a doll stand (not included). A truly original Christmas figure that will be treasured as an heirloom in years to come. (Read more below)

Description

Share

This fabric figure wears a silk dupion gown. Over that he has a cloak with a brocade cotton outer and a red satin lining. His hair is soft curly mohair. His boots are down felt. He is filled with  polyester filling. His facial features are gently soft sculpted and his eyes painted.

St Nicholas stands 39cm high

This figure was created from a pattern designed by Deanna Hogan of Blue Heron Dolls who permits the sale of a limited number of hand crafted items by sole crafters.

Who was St Nicholas?

St Nicholas is regarded as the real Santa Claus. He was a Christian bishop in Myra, Asia Minor in the days of the Roman Empire. He had a reputation for generosity and miracle working. He became patron saint of children. His day is 6th December which is celebrated in many European countries by the exchange of gifts.

PLEASE NOTE: This Santa doll is NOT a toy but a decorative item that will become a wonderful family heirloom. Many hours’ work went into creating him.
