Sled's are a tough items to guess the shipping on, so I have decided to list most of them on my selling blog instead of Etsy. There is a Santa sled that will be making it's arrival soon so check back for updates! ;)
This sled is entitled "Naughty or Nice?". The design was created by tole artist Shirley Wilson. The vintage sled stands approximately 41 1/2 inches tall. The wooden seat of the sled is approximately 25 1/2 inches tall with the painting of the bear in the stocking measuring 16 inches tall. The photo below represents the colors of the sled most accurately.
Here is a close up of this little girl! The reds in the background are photographing brighter than actual color, due to the flash. See photo above. :)
The teddy bear and stocking are painted with a dry brush and pouncing technique on one side of the wooden seat, leaving the back side as exposed vintage wood. The painted surfaces are sealed with two coats of matte sealer. The chrome is left in its "as found" state with some of the shine gone (see pic), along with the red runners and original rope (How cool is that?).
This sled would look great with some pine bough limbs, but I will leave that up to the new owner! ;)
The price for the "Naughty or Nice" sled is $115.00 + Shipping. :)
