Gypsies seem to be very popular in the miniature world so here we are with another "different" dollhouse figure. This time a gypsy fortune teller complete with her table and tools of the trade. I love to make miniatures that are a bit different, things that I would like to buy myself. My dolls are for the lover of things eclectic, unusual and downright collectable so if that's you, read on.
This lady is dressed in a dark green taffeta dress trimmed with embroidered edging at the cuffs and hem. She wears an enthnic looking waistcoat in red green and gold which tones perfectly with her dress - who knew fortune tellers were style divas too? She has a turqoise habotai silk headscarf decorated with "gold coins" and she is bedecked with jewellery ( although I didn't notice when I took the picture, her "gold chain" had fallen down the back of her neck so you can't really see it too well. It actually drapes halfway to her waist)
This sale includes the chair that she is sitting on and the fortune tellers table which is draped with a starch sculpted cloth of a deep red taffeta trimmed with black lace round the bottom. The crystal ball on the table is electrified (the wire goes through a hole in the middle of the table so cannot be seen) It glows with a bright sparkly light - very eerie. She has her book of obscure interpretations and a silk velvet fringed cloth which she uses to cover the crystal ball when not in use. There is a layout of tarot cards which she is reading for a customer - customer not supplied but check out my other dolls or ask for one to be made as a commission.
The fortune teller was sculpted to remain in this pose, sitting on a chair. She will not stand and although her arms are flexible, they have been modelled to look as if she is examining the cards on the table so it is not recommended that she be re-posed.
She is a 1:12th scale dollhouse figure and the height seated is 4 1/4 inches. Her table is 2 1/2 inches high and approximately 3 3/4 inches in diameter. She is hand sculpted from polymer clay and her limbs are made from covered wire. No molds have been used in her creation and none have been taken so she is truly a one of a kind figure. She comes from a smoke free home and will be well packaged and fully insured for delivery to your home.
This doll is a collectors' item and is not intended as a plaything for children. Do you have a suitable project for this lady, if not I hope she inspires you to begin something totally new.
