Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Loose Glitter
I just received that Santa and I like the seize and looks. But like other reviews , the glitter is all over the place. I brushed off the loose glitter and sprayed Santa ( not his tree or the fur on his coat , only the coat and the base ) with hair spray and now the glitter does not come off.
Rated 2 out of 5 by POOOKIE Black paint on boots!
I just received the santa. He is a great size for sure. I think it is beautiful, but, the one I received had black paint spattered on his boots and then it was glittered. I don't see any black paint on the boots in any of the pictures on air or on the web page. I guess I got a defective one. Bummer! It is a beautiful piece for the price except for the boots!
Rated 3 out of 5 by QVVJH A Glittery Mess
I looked forward to getting this Santa. It looked good on air and I like white Christmas décor items. However, the one I received shed flaked glitter like mad. I brushed it gently but it shed whenever it was touched or moved and I didn't want to be cleaning up glitter all season so I have returned it.

Very beautiful Santa. He does shed. Just hoping he maintains some of his sparkles over the years. I purchased Valerie's champagne finials to put with him and it is gorgeous together.
Rated 1 out of 5 by ooooooo What a mess !! Broken too.
Arrive broken. (tree broken off)
Mess of glitter & styrofoam everywhere !
Face was not painted on very well and looked like a child did it.
Came from China. Poorly made.
Nothing like I was expecting.
I am returning with a note of explanation.
Rated 2 out of 5 by i love shopping A LITTLE DISAPPOINTING
PURCHASED THIS SANTA AND I WISH THERE HAD BEEN AN ON AIR PRESENTATION .ONLINE THE STARS ON HIS COAT AND HIS BOOTS LOOKED LIKE THEY WOULD BE A VIBRANT GOLD WHICH IS WHAT I LIKED. UNFORTUNATELY THE STARS AS WELL AS THE BOOTS ARE VERY, VERY MUTED AND IT IS HARD TO EVEN TELL THAT THEY ARE GOLD. MINE ALSO HAS A SPOT AT THE BASE THAT LOOKS LIKE THE PAINT AND GLITTER WERE RUBBED OFF. I WILL TOUCH IT UP IF I DECIDE TO KEEP HIM. HE IS A GREAT SIZE AND I LIKE HIS OVERALL APPEARANCE WITH THE EXCEPTION THAT HE IS MORE OF A MUTED IVORY AND GOLD. I DID NOT WANT OVER THE TOP GOLD AND GLITTER BUT THIS IS JUST TOO MUTED TO ME. ONLINE HE APPEARS TO BE SO MUCH MORE VIBRANT. EVEN THE IVORY LOOKS VERY MUTED AND DINGY. DISAPPOINTED.

This is a beautiful folkloric Santa, truly well made and very large! I just purchased a second one to use on the edges of my fireplace mantle for Christmas. Lots of presence due to the size. I am impressed. Most folkloric paper mache Santas cost this much for the 6" size. Thank you Dennis, this really is very nicely done. The ivory and gold coloration is very festive yet subtle and lovely. it does shed glitter everywhere when you take it out of the box, but I can live with that!

Just received this today and it's gorgeous. The picture does not do it justice, and when I opened the box I was even more impressed at how beautiful it is. Only complaint is that it sheds a little glitter with handling, but that is minimal in comparison to how impressed I am with this piece. Thank you Dennis Basso.
