The same black lacquer was used to finish the top of his hat and the red lacquer used for the berries on his coat was also used to finish his mittens and shoes. Golden glitter was used to trim his coat and hat and to finish the tree he carries.This striking container is a testament to the talented team of artisans in Germany who produced it.
