whitney is a very beautiful minature doll face perfect for bead embroidery, bead weaving or wire wrapping maybe even a collage. The creative journey with each of these darlings will be wonderful. I bought an excess of them from a dealer in the US back in 2008. The dealer was unable to provide enough detail about them; other than they were manufactured in Taiwain, possibly in the 1940's. They are porcelain faces with a perfectly flat back. They have sat in my bead room cupboard for a long time now and it is time they went to new homes.
The supply is very limited, once they are gone that is it .. no more. I bought the entire lot from the dealer. I have given the name of Whitney to this doll face, because .. of my memories of Whitney Houston in the movie Body Guard! She has wonderful 'Harlequin' handpainted features around her eyes and on top of her head. While the faces might appear all the same, each one is slightly different from the next. Owing to their vintage nature, some imperfections may be present in the paint, I think this adds to their vintage allure though.There are no chips or cracks in any cabochons.
The last photograph provides you with inspiration as to what you may like to create with Whitney.
