A LOVELY POURED WAX GIRL
This is a
gorgeous poured wax girl. She is made from the
pink wax which Pierotti typically used, and is
beautifully made, so she is
possibly by them. As one
would expect with these dolls she has wax forearms and
lower legs and a wax head joined to her shoulder plate.
She is about 19 inches. I have taken a separate
photo of her hands and fingers (see below) they are so
beautifully modelled. On close inspection,
inevitably one finds repairs to these lovely wax dolls,
which is commonplace with the expansion and contraction
of the wax at times and also it can obviously be
affected if it has been in too close contact with heat.
We are lucky with this lovely girl, in that she does not
have extensive repairs. She has her original
inserted blond hair. Her face has a little fading
from light over her many years and she has such a gentle
She is beautifully dressed, and for
the most part I would say originally dressed. We
start with a super bodice - the stitching is so fine, as
is the fineness of the cotton it is made from. On
top of this her original woollen long underskirt.
Fine woollen cloth which is finished on all edges with
cream silk binding and featherstitch detail, another
little masterpiece - for images of these garments see
the photos below. She then has a long waist slip.
I feel this is a later replacement, but it fits her
well. Her gown is in really good condition and as
it fits her like a glove - again I would say original to
her. This is finished with a pink silk sash at her
waist. Do ask if you have any queries, and click on
