This wonderful one-of-a-kind trunk set is inspired by Lewis Carroll's classic, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland. There are so many loving details, you will be delighted to find something new with every glance. Alice and the White Rabbit sit atop a 20 inch tall box (trunk) with water-colored scenery from the story. Alice, handmade from wax-over-porcelain, measures 18 inches from head to toe. Her curious hand-painted expression is framed by a blond mohair wig. She is styled in true Friedericy fashion wearing a blue cotton dress and white silk apron. Holding his pocket watch, the White Rabbit is made of wax-over-porcelain and stands 8.5 inches tall. The trunk is filled with Wonderland characters, each sculpted from paper clay and entirely hand-painted and detailed. The characters include: 7.5 inch Mad Hatter, 7 inch March Hare, 7 inch Caterpillar, 8.5 inch Queen of Hearts holding a flamingo, 6 inch Cards of the Queen's Court and the flowers range from 3 to 7 inches tall. For an fun, added touch of whimsy, the Cheshire Cat is disappearing into the trunk with his head still left visible. Entire piece measures 28 inches tall and 18 inches wide.
Theatrical characters, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, mythical figures, children's heroes and heroines - these are the themes that inspire the creativity of Lucia Friedericy and her mother, Judith. Together they create one-of-a-kind, wax-over- porcelain art dolls entirely by hand...never working from molds. A Friedericy Doll is a stunning, original, handmade work of art... overflowing with whimsy and character sure to be a bright spot in your collection.
