Item/Description: “Santa Claus puppy dog holding a candy cane” Christmas holidays figural ceramic bisque dinner bell.
This darling brown doggie is oh-so-adorably attired in a black & white Santa Claus-style outfit that is accented with a white & green muffler scarf. In his arms he is holding a yummy red & white-striped candy can that he is delightedly hugging in anticipation of eating it. He cleverly serves as the finial handle to the upper portion of the festively and elaborately decorated bell on top of which he sits.
The ornamentation on the lower, bottom portion of the bell beneath him consists of a huge red gift-wrapping bow that decoratively encircles the entire bell; green garlands of red holly berries/berry bushes that also enwreath the entire bell; and a lavish sprinkling over its entire surface of sweet little five-pointed gold stars.
So precious and enchanting is this charming bell that you’ll want to have it on display all year long and not just limit it to holiday decor!
***What a DOGGONE terrific gift this would make for the dog lover in your life (perhaps that’s you?)! :~)
