The definitive Jolly Old Elf hold his tongue between his teeth and peers over the rims of his glasses as he paints tiny details onto a glittering ballerina doll with fairy wings as a certain long nosed marionette looks on. Perhaps Santa's a bit distracted by the overenthusiastic puppet's cries of joy at the newest toy. The other toys watch excitedly from the shelves behind Santa, waiting patiently for their new friend to be completed. Soft, warm tones throughout give a cozy feel to the scene, while well placed foil underlay and sprinkles of glitter add the right touch of holiday sparkle. The body of the box is a softly shimmering gold. This box is made of high quality papier mache, and is signed on the lid with the title, artist's name, and village, There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of this piece is flush.
