A new porcelain half doll sitting in a vintage porcelain hand painted compote. She is a great victorian accent piece for interior decoration and a collector’s art piece to be handed down for generations. This porcelain bowl is hand painted and signed on the bottom. The china painter is a master china painter as the grapes, leaves and vines are extraordinary. Being a china painter myself, i know just how good the painting is. I have made the little half doll specifically for this china bowl, her bodice has been china painted in the exact shade of purple as one of the groups of grapes. Her costume then exactly matches the shade of purple of her porcelain bodice. It is made of purple silk taffeta and silk chiffon. Enhanced with purple swarovski crystals, green lace, purple rose trim, gold beaded lace, and and much more. Everything is hand sewn so no worries about glue turning color in the future or pieces of the costume coming loose. The only glue used is for decorations on the porcelain, like her gold necklace, the tiny flower rhinestones on her dainty little gold shoes. The whole combination is a very beautiful and pleasing vision to grace a dresser or accent table. I have included a photo of her in a decorative vignette. They are really fun to arrange with plants, lighting and little keepsakes. She is poured with porcelain slip into a half doll mold. Each one is then fired, painted with china paints and fired again, often many times to get the beautiful one of a kind, realistic, face and color combinations on the bodice that make my dolls unique. Like all of my dolls, she is a one of a kind fine collectible artist doll, designed and dressed by me and is not for children. Each little face is as individual as are real people. The whole arrangement of doll and compote is approximately 11 inches tall and is signed and dated. She cannot be removed from the compote. How she is constructed. I start out making my sitting dolls by gluing a cylinder of florist foam to the bottom of the china. I then make a “pouf” of silk that i stuff and attach to the foam with florist pins and glue. Draw it up into a nearly closed top. Like a ball or pouch. I then insert the half doll and sew her to the”ball:, then i attach the legs to the ball with sewn ribbons. Then i make the skirts and embellish with lace, trims and crystals. I make my dolls with great care, as they are meant to be enjoyed for generations. Only the doll in the compote is included in this listing. More shoe ladies will be coming along with regular half dolls, and half dolls sitting in antique china sugar bowls and of course 1:12 doll house dolls. My next big project is going to be making regular sized bed dolls/french boudoir dolls some dripping. With antique laces my grandmother had one on her bed that i just loved and always wanted one. So, if i make one, i may as well make several and share the beauty of these unique decorative art dolls. This item is made of porcelain and silk, china compote, crystal beads. The style is historical and victorian.
