Sleepy Time Santa is ready for a rest after delivering all of those presents. He is sitting in a handmade willow chair atop a red velvet pillow decorated with fringe and buttons. He is warmly dressed in a striped t-shirt that is covered with a red and green plaid shirt. His legs are covered with black and white striped tights, red velvet pants and adorable felt sheep slippers mad in Nepal, especially for Little Souls Dolls. His head is covered with a green and red polka-dot cap trimmed in white fur. He peeks at a book wrapped in green felt that is decorated with a handmade grey mouse perched on the spine of the book. A permanently lit black lantern with copper colored glass hangs from the back of the chair and is nestled in with Santa. Finishing touches include a mother of pearl watch with a smiling half moon on one side of the face and his green Santa’s Bag is tied to his chair with red and green ribbon. He measures 24″ high and 16″ wide, including his chair.
This adorable Santa is from our personal collection and was made in 2005. He has been in storage for most of that time and is in perfect condition. We have enjoyed sitting him under our tree at Christmas.
This 24″ one-of-a-kind Little Souls Santa Doll is designed, created and personally signed by the artist, Gretchen Wilson.
