INTRODUCING OUR NEW ALL-COTTON FIGURES – BE ONE OF OUR FIRST CUSTOMERS TO OWN ONE!
We have always been enthralled by the antique little cotton people and animals made in little German cottage industries to grace feather-trees in Europe, and later throughout America. The whimsical personality and life-like 3-dimensions make these ornaments absolutely irresistible! There is no end to the variety and creativity that Gail can put into these. We use different types of all antique cotton to “spin” the legs and arms, and our best early cotton batting for the coats, hats, trims, and other details.
This plump Santa is as huggable as he is soft; a couple of errant toys are tucked into his pocket, ready to be popped into a stocking. Materials include: antique cotton covered over vintage pipe-cleaner wire, antique scrap Santa’s head, antique scrap sailor boy (in pocket), antique cotton batting, antique mica flakes, early vintage grey-green cotton chenille, antique Dresden paper trim, rare antique paper covered over cardboard (swing), antique decorative wire. Handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
