Father Christmas with Swan Sleigh and Ice Palace

Title

Father Christmas with Swan Sleigh and Ice Palace

Description

In a roughly oval center scene, Father Christmas stands next to a golden sleigh in the shape of a swan. He is in a long, furry red hooded coat with golden trim. Behind him is a many-tiered palace made of ice. The scene is bordered with snowy mountains across the lower frame and upper right, and a night sky on the left. The left side of the oval is bordered in holly, bells, and what appear to be fairies with an undecipherable plaque in the lower left.
