You are bidding on 15 pieces from the Santa's World Travels Collection (I have two sets of one piece) making a total of 14 different pieces from this collection. Every colorful detail has been meticulously hand-painted by Maruri artisans. They are all cold-cast porcelain sculptures, beautifully detailed and are finished front, back and sides. Each sculpture features Santa as he treks around the globe to deliver his gifts with the aid of a host of animal helpers and a friendly elf. This charming collection, entitled Santa's World Travels, depicts St. Nick's whirlwind journey on the most important night of the year. As he makes his rounds to different countries, you'll notice that fun-loving Santa has traded in his traditional red and white costume for a colorful new wardrobe befitting each corner of the world he visits. Each piece retails between $75.00 and $250.00 depending on the size and detail.
