Item Description

This hard-to-find Christopher Radko "Russian Santa" ornament is a must have for any Russian Santa collection, first coloration, hand blown European glass Christmas tree decoration, 1991, 91-112-0, 911120.

Produced in restricted numbers in 1991 as a first coloration of one of the most collected series of ornaments in Radko's line, the now retired Polish mouth blown glass ornament is seldom available to collectors.

Dressed in a deep red, long robe abundantly trimmed in pearl glitter, the black-mittened Santa bears gifts in a golden brown bag and carries a matching staff.

The evolution of the Russian Santa is an interesting story; the Russian Santa, Ded Moroz, originally was a sinister sorcerer that stole children from their parents and demanded presents as ransom.

Over time, "Grandfather Frost" was completely transformed into a character more similar to the modern Santa Claus.

However, the modern Russian Santa is still slightly different from the traditional Western rendition of Jolly Saint Nick. Instead of sneaking through the chimney in the middle of the night, Ded Moroz prefers to deliver presents to children in person.

Standing approximately 7 inches tall, this traditional Russian Santa European handblown glass ornament is guaranteed to be a perfect find for the Russian Santa, world Christmas, travel or Christopher Radko holiday ornament collector.

CONDITION OF ITEM:

Mint condition ornament with original Radko hangtag and stored in a smoke-free environment.
