#116 Ashton Drake Little Drummer Boy

Acquired 1994

A first issue in the Children of Christmas Collection in 1994, designed by artist Marlene Sirko, this piece was a Christmas gift to me from my husband. It is the first movable, musical doll issued by Ashton Drake. With the look of sweet reverence, the Drummer Boy plays his drum for the Baby Jesus. He is crafted of hand-painted porcelain and dressed in authentic biblical children's wear. He plays “The Little Drummer Boy” with the wind of the key. While he is not a part of the Oh Holy Night collection, he is a beautiful compliment to the set. Purchase price, $79.95.
