Dorothy, a Wizard of Oz, caricature ornament was made by the late New York Artist Ron Kron in the mid 1980’s and purchased at Paul Bellardo’s New York City’s West Village gallery Ballardo, Ltd. This caricature ornament of Dorothy from the 1939 MGM musical the 'Wizard of Oz, is artist signed “Kron” on the back of the ornament’s neck.

The Dorothy ornament is a wonderful example of Ron Kron's, slip cast, intricately costumed and hand painted porcelain “Portrait Sculptures”. Kron’s dolls were commissioned by celebrities and fans from all over the world. Ron Kron gained national attention when given a two page photo article in People Magazine in May 1977 -
