This Victorian theme vignette was a commissioned piece.
Photo shown below was used to try to capture some resemblance of little girl in portrait. Santa is dressed in a 3/4 long caped coat in black/brown tweed wool, and black wool pants.
He is tipping his hat to greet the little girl. His black top hat was hand-made with black wool and has a hand-stitched grosgrain ribbon around brim. He also wears a whiteshirt with dark red ascot at neck. Santa is seated on a wood & cast iron park bench under a lighted Victorian lamppost. The little girl is wearing a dark red velour dress trimmed in antique gold/red trim, also matching hooded cape trimmed in dark brown mink, with mink fur muff and handmade black leather boots.
Her accessories include a tiny book called "Little Dorritt" from the Charles Dickens series, with real print inside, a pair of ice skates, and a tiny collectible porcelain doll from England. Santa is seated with his two puppies, a Jack Russell terrier and Black Scottie.
Thank you Heather ! I really enjoyed making your special piece.
