Mismatched mittens

These two look like they came as a set, but I found them years apart in two different states with more than 100 other ornaments in between. The small one came from Macy’s in New York City, the large one from Target in Middletown, N.J. Other than the size, the only real differences between them are the holly accent on the smaller one’s droopy Santa hat and the extra gold detailing around the large one’s neck. For some reason, I have a notation on the small one that says “3 in N Pole,” probably part of the branding for Macy’s Holiday Lane line of decorations.
