St. Nik's Toy Treasure from Inge-Glas of Germany

Posted on December 16, 2013 | 0 Comments

New for 2013, our favorite of Inge-Glas new Santa ornaments is St. Nik's Toy Treasure (Inge-Glas no. 1-070-13, 4-1/2" tall).

St. Nik's Toy Treasure is quite special in that it combines several mediums - the basic, elegant as always, glass ornament with Santa holding in front of him his bag of Christmas treasures:  a bottle brush tree, a gift wrapped in paper with a yellow tinsel ribbon, and a gold glass Christmas ornament.  

Santa brings unselfishness and goodwill

 "The magical man is based on a melting pot of customs and cultures from the world over.
St. Nicholas, a fourth century, kind and benevolent monk, legendary for his compassion and charity was the most
influential figure in shaping the image of Santa Claus.  When the Dutch brought their "Sinter Clas" to the United States,
the Americans, unaccustomed to the Dutch accent, pronounced the name Santa Claus.
Storybooks, like "It was the Night Before Christmas", and 1800s advertising campaigns brought to live visions
of a jolly man delivering presents to good boys and girls on Christmas Eve.  
Santa Claus encompasses all the goodness and innocence of childhood.
We do believe in Santa!" - Inge Glas
