Vintage - Plate for Santa's Porridge, No. 2
Vintage, Ceramic Plate for Santa's Porridge, Svenska Jultraditioner No. 2
According to old Swedish Traditions:
On every farm in Sweden people thought there lived a Tomte. Tomten, a little grey dressed, and often quite dreary figure does not have much in common with today's bright-green and red-dressed Santa Claus.
Tomten was incredibly important for the farm and the farmers biggest fear was that Tomten would get angry and leave the farm. To please Tomten, every Christmas night, a bowl of porridge was taken from the Christmas table and served to Tomten.
This lovely Christmas plate is in perfect condition and has the text: "Min sked är liten och nätt, så jag äter mig fort mätt. Min sked är stor och ber', jag äter lika mycket som tre".
Comes in good condition
