This vintage German hand carved wooden Santa from Kathe Wohlfahrt is from the pre-eminent Old World Christmas Shop in the entire world. This Old world Santa is a full 11.25 tall and carved by a master wood carver.
The base is 6 1/8' in length, is 4 1/2" width, and stands 1 " tall. That makes the total height 12.25. Santa is not a cartoonish figure at all but is very realistic with very sharp details. The carver incorporated the bold tool cuts associated with traditional flat-plane carving and intricate knife work of chip carving.
Santa is walking carrying his bag of presents: you see a doll, a wrapped present, and other gifts in his brown bag. Finished with rich colored paint and stains the figure has intricate detail.Santa's face is a work of art in itself. The carving is in great vintage condition. Kathe Wohlfahrt opened her first store in Germany in 1963. They offer you products from the Rothenburg Christmas Workshop, which are designed and made by creative artists and expert craftsmen. Only high-quality materials such as glass, wood and tin are used in these items. There are eleven Kathe Wohlfahrt Stores across the world today with eight in Germany, one in France, one in Belgium, and one in the USA in Stillwater Minnesota.
