Description

Our Woman with Garlic and White Shawl French Santons are hand crafted in Provence. They represent traditional Provencal characters of people carrying fresh products produce, bread, chicken, etc.. from the market to their home. They are all carefully hand made with clay and painted by hand one by one with real life details. All objects that our Santons carry are replicas from real objects and scaled down. All of our Santons are 12” height by 6” width and stand on an Oak Solid Wood Base.

The origin of the Santons goes back to the French revolution; Santons meaning “saint” were traditionally used in churches at Christmas time around the “crèches” or nativity scene where they represented characters from the bible and as a result attracted large crowds mostly  in the Provence region. In 1789, when the French government abruptly closed all churches the parishioners were distraught and sought solace in recreating their own nativity scenes which included Santons in their homes. The tradition was strong over the years and today Santons are a part of life in Provence. We have chosen one of the most respected “santonniers” in Provence because of the quality of his craftsmanship and most importantly because of the authenticity of all the characters that are produced. And as usual, we are pleased to bring you this French tradition at a competitive prices. Product of France.
