A charming addition to your holiday collection, this jolly Santa carrying a sack of toys has stopped for a ride on a rocking horse. He must need to test it once more before leaving it under the tree! The tradition of chalkware figurines and the rocking horse both reflect works in Colonial Williamsburg's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. Add a distinctive historical touch to your Christmas décor with this collectible Vaillancourt chalkware Santa on a rocking horse. 10 1/2"L x 9"H x 3"W


   
Santa Claus did not become part of New World Christmas traditions until the 19th century; this Santa figurine reflects the collections of the award-winning Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum — the oldest institution in the United States dedicated solely to the collection and preservation of American folk art.

Each Vaillancourt piece made exclusively for Colonial Williamsburg begins with an antique chocolate mold that is re-sculpted with a Colonial Williamsburg holiday motif. The new mold is filled with a plaster-like substance and dried. The resulting chalkware is then hand-painted, bringing to life the mold maker's intricate artistry combined with the festivity of Colonial Williamsburg's holiday season.
