Vaillancourt Chalkware Glittered Colonial Snowman with Glasses
Add a playful colonial accent to your seasonal décor with this collectible Vaillancourt Chalkware Snowman. Our cheerful snowman wears a three cornered "cocked" hat in festive holiday green, 18th-century style spectacles, and carries a copper mug and a clay-style pipe. Perhaps he is telling tales of yore at one of Colonial Williamsburg's famous taverns. The tradition of chalkware figurines reflects the collections of Colonial Williamsburg's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum.

This snowman 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.
