This Patricia Breen "Advent Santa" Roman Numerals ornament, A retired, color change, mouth-blown and handcrafted Polish glass Christmas tree ornaments, 1999, B9902, 9902.
Produced in fewer numbers as a new color way in 1999 and retired. Significantly fewer than the permissible 2000 pieces per mold were made, enhancing the collectible value of this European hand blown glass ornament.
Santa lugs a huge light green sack spattered with gold glittered Roman numerals that celebrate the "12 Days of Christmas"!
The bag's exaggerated girth may be due to its contents -- "twelve drummers, eleven pipers, ten leaping lords, nine dancing ladies, eight milking maids, seven swimming swans, six laying geese, five golden rings, four calling birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree". A large haul indeed!
The unique interplay of colors between his luminescent pink robe and stocking cap, pink glittered trim and green glittered mittens enhance the charm of the ornament.
Approximately 4 1/2 inches tall by 3 inches wide, this European handblown glass ornament has excellent presence. Try this collectible on your Easter tree, as well! Buy the hand blown glass ornament now before Santa joins another advent calendar!
