7 Victorian Santas with different colored Robes
This is a beautiful Vintage collection of Victorian Santas in non traditional colored robes, as none of them are red! Although actually, they would have been traditional back in their day, before Santa started wearing his red suit, with stocking cap, he used to wear long Robes in different colors. I don’t have a lot of these images, but I’ve put together this little set of Blue robed Victorian Santas and some Brown Robe ones too. These are great to use in your Christmas Crafts when you want more of an Old World look! I’m sure you’ll find all kinds of ways o use these in your Holiday projects and decor. Some of these images are new to the blog and some have been here for awhile.
Santas with Brown Robes
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Here we see St Nick wearing a brown robe with creamy fur trim and a matching hat. It looks like some lucky child is getting a whole lot of toys, as he appears to be dumping the whole bag!
This is a beautiful Old World Swedish Santa Image and one of my favorites! Featured above is a glorious looking Santa with a light brown coat, he has a Holly Wreath on his head and he’s carrying a small Christmas Tree and lots of Toys! The greeting on the card is “God Jul” (Merry Christmas), so I’m assuming it could be Swedish, but I know a few other countries use that same greeting so I can’t say for sure. Such a gorgeous image for your Vintage Christmas Craft Projects!
And lastly we have this marvelous old Christmas Card featuring an Old World Santa, in a Brown Robe, he’s got lots of toys to hand out to the good girls and boys and a tiny tree too! The scene around him is a snowy one. You can see that the children have spotted him and are all running towards him.
Santas with Purple Robes
I thought this one was so unusual, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Santa Clause in a Purple Robe! Of course he has a matching hat too. Such a lovely color and the Children seem delight as well.
Santas with Blue Robes
This first image is a new addition to this site. Here we have a lovely Santa in a dark blue robe with matching hat. Both pieces are trimmed in white fur. He has a fairly large Christmas Tree strapped on his back and he’s holding a big sack of toys! The Greeting is simply “Christmas Greetings”, on the card.
Next we have a beautiful Old World Santa Scrap piece! This one has a Blue Coat trimmed in fur. He’s carrying a Basket with some Toys. The little Jester Doll is missing a leg and an arm, I left him that way … he made think me of the “Land of Misfit Toys” .. so cute!
This is a very old Woolson Spice Co. card, showing a gorgeous colorful Santa, with his bag of toys. His dark blue suit is trimmed in brown fur instead of white. He’s leaning over the moon and looking at an ocean scene below. Such a whimsical piece, notice how Santa is hanging stockings on the Moon!
I hope you enjoyed this collection of Santa’s in their different color robes.
I saved them all. These Santas were all in fashion – we have red now with a black belt.
I’d rather see these – they are awesome – each and every one of them!
Thanks so much for sharing these with us!
I am so happy you enjoyed them Irene 🙂
