About This Item

The MFA exclusive Vaillancourt chalkware design is inspired by the flying sleigh image in the Thomas Nast illustrated book "A Visit from St. Nicholas" in our collection. It is the third chalkware piece based on our collection and created for us by Vaillancourt. Each collector's piece is numbered - order early for lowest number availability!

Vaillancourt Folk Art is one of America’s last remaining Christmas collectible makers. These chalkware figures are made by hand in Massachusetts. Each one is created by taking a vintage chocolate mold, filling it with a plaster-like substance, and hand painting the resulting “chalkware”. While the mold-maker’s palette has been limited to chocolate brown, Judi Vaillancourt’s colors bring each figure to life.

6” tall. Hand painted chalkware figurine.
