Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
She is very fabulous. She has a painted on bright blue suit, sassy red socks and black slippers, touches of glitter and foil earrings that accent her elegant black up do. Her joints move easily. She is in very good vintage condition. She has a little bit of damage to the backs of her legs and a minor crack on the side of her head (see last picture), but nothing that detracts in any fashion from her myriad charms :)
Puta Dolls (puta meaning bitch in Mexico! O_O) are a folk art in Mexico. They have two interesting stories. The first is that they were popular additions to the Easter baskets of little girls. The second is that it is said prostitutes used them to let clients know they were open for business, by placing the dolls in a window.
Either way, whether you like the fact that Madelaluz looks like she ran away with the circus, or the history associated with this awesome folk art- she's a keeper :)
She measures 18 inches tall.
ps: she also has a circus sister, also in the shop
