Santa at Globe

Inspired by the famous Saturday Evening Post cover, the gold-layered silver ingot is a true work of art in its own right.

One of The Saturday Evening Post's most anticipated issues was its special Christmas edition — especially at the height of the magazine's popularity when it often displayed a Norman Rockwell Christmas painting on the cover. The first Rockwell Christmas cover was in 1916, which was just his sixth cover for the magazine, while the last was 40 years later in 1956.

Rockwell's 1926 Christmas cover remains one of his most endearing. Known by many titles, including Santa at Globe and Santa's Good boys, it shows a jolly Santa examining a globe with a magnifying glass while holding a book entitled Good boys.

Among the small but fascinating details in Rockwell's famous painting are a quill pen behind Santa's ear and what appears to be a halo over Santa's head.
