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.
SPECIAL FEATURES This Santa, inspired by an antique cotton ornament, has the whimsical and foksy plump proportions these early ornaments were known (and loved) for. This woodsy Santa is returning from foraging for treats in the frozen forest. Materials include: antique cotton covered over vintage pipe-cleaner wire, antique scrap Santa’s head, antique cotton batting, antique mica flakes, antique Dresden paper and stars, antique feather-tree sprig, antique mesh bag, early vintage spun-cotton and compo fruit. Handmade and signed by Gail Giaimo.
