RUSSIAN SANTAS COLLECTORS!  
Hopefully you will have a chance to try Russian chocolate bars, then please try to look for
some in a specialty store.  Russians produce excellent chocolate in the plain form and in
pralines.  The dark chocolate with the higher co
coa content is preferred by most
Russians as throughout all of Europe.

The former Red October chocolate company had a factory in central downtown Moscow but
popular Red October brand chocolate in stores.  The chocolate bar on the left with the little
girl on the wrapper is the Red October brand.
All of these magnificent wooden Russian  Santas are magnificently carved and
hand painted.  Each figure expresses the vision of the Russian carver and also
the artist who paints the scenes on the cloak or sack.
The Russian artist then has ideas about what to paint on the front of the cloak and
whether she/he wants to put additional paintings on the back of the cloak or of the
cloak but instead paint flowers or use a symmetrical design embellished with gold paint
or jewel-like droplets of paint.  When the Russian artist the back of the cloak, this
greatly increases the value and price of the Father Frost carving.  Some collectors of
Russian Santas will only purchase the piece if it has paintings on both sides of the
cloak!  For this reason, the Father Frost figure can be displayed at any angle and you
will be able to see hand painted scenes all around.  The artfully hand crafted, wooden
RUSSIAN SANTAS take months of painstaking carving and painting before each piece is
completed.
