Pere Noel, A Large, Primitive Santa & Teddy Bear Set!

This is one sweet Christmas set. Meet Pere Noel. He is my first BIG Christmas doll of the season, measuring 28″ tall from head to toe. He measures a full 25-26″ when sitting.  Both he & his little friend are original, one of a kind muslin & fiberfill creations. They’ve  been hand-painted top to bottom and have been sanded & aged, giving them such a lovely, vintage patina, like the toys from so long ago. Both dolls have been sealed so that they may be lightly dusted after display. Both dolls have knees which are sewn through. Teddy may be displayed separately, if you wish. However, he only sits with assistance.

Santa’s gentle face has been been carefully painted with a variety of media. His nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving him a cute pout underneath that beard & mustache. His hands are needle-sculpted as well.  He wears detailed boots, complete with painted buttons.

Pere Noel’s shirt has been made of taupe osnaburg. His pants are chocolate corduroy with embroidery thread ties at the hemline. He has polka dot suspenders & vintage, mother of pearl buttons underneath that velveteen coat! Pere Noel’s hat is made of velveteen as well. It is a beautiful jewel tone green. The arms of the coat are accented with white faux fur. A silver jingle bell dangles from the end of Pere Noel’s hat.

This sweet bear has needle-sculpted ears & needle-sculpted fingers. His shirt is taupe osnaburg. His pants are chocolate brown corduroy. Polka dot suspenders complete his outfit. There is a lot of hand-stitching in this set!
