Vietri Old St. Nick

20 Days Until Christmas...What could be more whimsical than the individual portraits of Old St. Nick? Each Santa is created from Maestro Alessandro Taddei's childhood memories of stories his mother read to him.
Made of terra bianca, each portrait is painted directly on the fired surface in Tuscany so that each stroke is seen in detail. This chocolate pot and latte mugs would be great little Christmas gifts....mix with some of our freshly ground coffee or hot chocolate. These cute little red boxes full of straw make the perfect gift! The square santa plates above are perfect for cookies....fill with cookies and place one of our cute cast iron mice on top a thoughtful and wonderful gift!
