Introducing the 2019 Annual Plate, A Story from St. Nicholas. Even St. Nicholas needs a break every once in a while. During a long Christmas Eve night of delivering gifts, he takes a well deserved rest. With his favorite Christmas story in hand, and his feet put up by the fireplace, St. Nicholas takes a breath as he reminds himself of the meaning of Christmas. In the chaos of the holidays, may we all be able to find true joy in the act of giving. Whether it is our time or our treasures, we should each strive to give more than we receive. The 2019 Annual Plate, A Story from St. Nicholas, is inspired by a piece from photographer Thomas Gibson and put into metal by Master Die Engraver Len Youngo, who uses century old techniques to craft magnificent pieces of art.
