KUNSTLER 2002 COLLECTABLE ORNAMENT – "CONFEDERATE WINTER"
by Mort Kunstler
Edition Size: 7500
Here for your consideration is the Timber Ridge School 2002 Collectable Christmas Ornament featuring Mort Kunstler's 1989 snow scene "CONFEDERATE WINTER." This is the 7th in a series of ornaments produced and issued by the Timber Ridge School.
"CONFEDERATE WINTER" depicts General Richard Taylor leading his Louisiana Brigade and some Virginia troops through Chester's Gap, Virginia, in March 1862. His troops were reinforcements for "Stonewall" Jackson's army and the spring Shenandoah Valley campaign.
This Christmas ornament was produced and issued exclusively by the Timber Ridge School, a licensed residential treatment center and accredited educational program serving young men between the ages of 11 and 19 with a history of serious emotional, learning, and behavioral difficulties. Funds for the improvement of campus programs and facilities are raised through the original sale of ornaments. Mort Kunstler, a very generous supporter of the school, donated the use of his work "CONFEDERATE WINTER" for this ornament. No more than 7,500 of this 7th in a series of ornaments were produced. It has a 24 karat gold plated over brass border and is finished with red ribbon. It is packaged in a presentation box with black felt backing and comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and an ornament stand so it can be either hung on a tree or displayed on a shelf.
