Vaillancourt Chalkware - The Williamsburg Inn Santa
This charming Colonial Williamsburg exclusive Vaillancourt Chalkware collectible combines the holiday decorating traditions of the Williamsburg Inn with Vaillancourt's chalkware folk art made from 19th-century chocolate molds. This jolly fellow is carrying a sack filled with pomegranates, a signature holiday fruit decoration at the Inn. The laurel wreath decoration painted on his coat is similar to the Regency-style décor of the Inn's interior.

Each piece begins in an antique chocolate mold from the Vaillancourt collection but is then re-sculpted with a Colonial Williamsburg holiday motif. A new mold, made from the re-sculpted piece, 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 and the festivity of Colonial Williamsburg's holiday season.
