Gladys Boalt

An experienced needleworker and fabric store owner, Gladys Boalt had already been creating wonderful boutique items for an exclusive New York shop when she was asked to try her hand at creating soft-sculpture Christmas ornaments. More than twenty years later Ms. Boalt is the proud creator of an exclusive line of historically accurate, highly-detailed figural ornaments that are so inspiring, they have even been chosen to adorn the White House Christmas tree.

Each Boalt ornament is a small work of art involving as many as fifty separate steps. Completely hand-sewn by talented members of Ms. Boalt's New England women's cooperative, the little figures and tiny costumes are complete with authentic period details. Gladys Boalt personally hand paints every face, then signs and dates each piece.

The incredible range of characters includes not only Santas, creche figures and other Christmas-themed items, but also storybook and nursery rhyme characters, historic figures, presidents, artists, musicians and animals. With more than four hundred pieces at last count, one can always find something with special significance.
