Rudolf Claus released in 2010
Only 91 Issued
Pictured is a stock photo of Rudolf Claus. Each one is slightly unique since they are all hand painted. Please note that there might be slight imperfections, as well. These are folk art pieces and are made to look old, even though they are brand new.
Each Old World Santa is a limited edition collectible and is serially numbered. They are mounted onto a wooden base, the underside of which is engraved important info about your Rudolf Claus. Your Santa will also include a wooden story chip with the following story engraved on it:
Rudolf Claus is from the northern part of Slovenia. He passes out presents each Christmas, with the help of his all volunteer army of elves called the Maister minions. He's also known as a painter and poet in his native homeland. He's seen here bringing a Christmas tree to the less fortunate.
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 sewn into his garment storage sack.
