THE ELF is a fun loving fellow even though he does work hard in the shop.
He stands eighteen inches tall from the tip of his felted red cap to his handmade pleather boots.
He sports a creamy white beard, brows and mustache of Australian mohair, has glasses perched on this nose, and a red cardinal sitting on a candy cane atop one of his pointy ears.
His jacket is of either wool or velour and has buttons and stitching. He wears a tee shirt and striped or plaid knickers. He is wearing striped socks for the cold winter nights.
A German hobby horse is in one hand and a bear in the other. His work for the day! His arms and fingers are wired. He will free stand as he is also wired from foot to head.
Yes, he is a bit plump of the belly as he does have a bit of a sweet tooth. Tucked in his waist band is a gingerbread man, candy cane, peppermint candy and a rolled parchment paper of wishes. He has a gold chain and a watch fob. He also has a stash of candy in one of his boots—for emergencies.
Lady bugs?? Of course—there are three of them—behind an ear, on his waistband and sitting on a boot.
His family is English so they have names such as Reginal, Bertie, Roscoe, Elgin, Bellingsley, Barnaby, Bosley, Jaspar, Rumsy and Franklin.
Hope he finds his way to your home for the holidays!!
