This is the newly re-issued Special Edition sized Old World Santa for 2014. The Special Edition pieces are approximately 11" - 12" tall. Whereas our regular sized ones are 7" - 8" tall. The original Mraz was issued back in 2007. This reissued version features our upgraded artistry. See below for explanation. There will only be 50 of this Santa issued in total. Each of our Old World Santas are limited edition collectibles and each is serially numbered. They are mounted onto a wooden base, the underside of which is engraved important info about your Mraz Claus. Your Santa will also include a wooden story chip with the following story engraved on it:
Mraz Claus adores the sounds of children singing or reading poetry, and often asks them to do so during the holidays. If they have been very good, they will receive not only a grand smile from him, but also he will create a perfectly formed glass snowflake with his magical snowflake staff for each of their Christmas trees.
For the past several years, all our newly released pieces have had a much higher quality paint job and come with a story chip (made from actual wood) and each has a wooden base with their name and other details engraved into the underside (see pictures). Although the artistry is much more detailed and distinct than our old style of painting, they all still have the folk art carved appearance that we have all come to know and love about Great American Collectibles. But the time it takes now, to paint just one Santa, is orders of magnitude more than the older method. Hence the higher price points. But along with the higher price point comes a piece of art that retains even more value as time marches on. We hope you enjoy it.
He's brand new, in the original box with all the original accessories including the registration instructions on how to obtain the Certificate of Authenticity and it also comes with his story chip (engraved wooden plaque.)
