Featured - Jim Shore Santas Around The World Collection
We have had a wonderful fascination with Santa Claus from a very early age. From his plush red suit and his curly white hair and beard to the reindeer who pulled his sleigh. This jolly old man and his elves who deliver presents to children all around the world is a constant source of wonder and amazement.
Jim Shore’s Santas Around the World collection shines a light on holiday traditions of cultures near and far. Discover your family heritage as designed by Jim Shore available in two styles - small hanging ornament and larger standing figurine.
