First Day of Christmas: 24″ Father Christmas Ready to Costume!

24" Kimple Father Christmas 24" Kimple Father Christmas

This 24″ Father Christmas made from the Kimple mold was completed in 2008. I’m sorry to say he never was finished with costume so I have decided to offer him for sale as an undressed doll. He stands 24″ tall and is complete on his cloth body with the under robe and metal doll stand. I do not have a costume pattern to go with him. He has a beautifully painted porcelain head with beard, bisque hands and painted brown boots. Father Christmas has blue painted eyes. Completed with a traditional Father Christmas robe he will make an awesome addition to anyone’s Christmas collection. He will be my one and only offering of this size. I lost this mold in the storage unit fire of 2012 and was never able to replace it. He is a one of a kind offering from me. I do however still have the large size Father Christmas mold from Kimple that I offer soft fired greenware and blank bisque. 
Regular price is $450.00 however his sale price through my “Twelve Days of Christmas Sales” is $375.00. If I list him in my eBay store or Etsy he will be listed at the $450.00 original cost. Sale price is only available through the website sale here. To purchase please email me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com or call me at 815-565-0024. The first person to contact me will receive him at the special price. I can then figure out shipping costs to your location. He is available for both domestic and international shipping. Here are some more photos of Father Christmas:
