Silent Night (Christmas Cottage III)
Thomas Kinkade created this painting in 1992 and is third of ten paintings in his popular Christmas Cottage series.
Silent Night limited editions were issued in only the 12" x 16" size and in very small quanities ~~ only 980 S/Ns, 200 A/Ps, 200 G/Ps and 100 P/Ps making a total in the world of 1480!
With 100,000 SERIOUS Kinkade collectors in the world, 1480 of a painting is hardly enough!
By 1993 all limited editions of Silent Night were sold out making this painting very scarce
