Belsnickle Beeswax Santa Figure
The Belsnickle is an old tradition of a stern Santa who delivered coal and switches to all the naughty children, thus the muse for this piece.
The age old craft of casting wax into holiday treasures has been handed down through the generations. Please note that my beeswax creations are made to order. The items take 48 hours to cool before they can be shipped. Your item will ship 4 days after you place your order.
German chocolatiers and bakers created beeswax ornaments using their intricate hand carved chocolate and cookie molds. Beautiful examples 300 years old, can be found in museums in throughout Europe. Beeswax figures dating over 3000 years have been found in Egypt. The beeswax still carries the honey fragrance and remains pliable. Your Allegheny Hearth handmade beeswax ornament should last a lifetime.
Inspired by the work of the bee. A bee visits 10 flowers to gather a drop of nectar. It takes 10 drops of nectar to yield a drop of honey and 10 drops of honey for every drop of wax. The bee gathers nectar from 1000 flowers to produce just one drop of this precious beeswax
Price is for one wax figure 6 inches tall, weighing 7 oz. packed in a kraft box ready for gifting.
