These dolls are 'Twelvemo Figures'. They are beautifully detailed and highly pose-able female figures, made to 1/12 scale so they are 14cm, or almost 6 inches tall. The figure can stand alone in some positions, if carefully posed and the joints have been stiffened with a little beeswax to help her hold a pose.

The original is entirely my own design and was sculpted by hand (over a period a some of years) and they have been cast in resin. All the tiny pieces are then trimmed, drilled and fitted together by hand. Each figure has 32 points of articulation and Twelvemo can take on very eloquent and expressive poses.

This one is Painted Lady and she has been painted like an English rose with fine blond hair. The egg is normal size and there to give an idea of the scale. (I was going to use a real egg but I broke it during the photo-shoot!)

As objects to handle they are truly special and unusual and they suggest their own narrative by the positions they can take up. Because they are 1/12th scale it is easy to get props and things to the right scale.

The word Twelvemo is an old bookbinding term, for a small book, and the the word has come to mean a small thing or person. The figures were made to be animation puppets or artists' lay figures originally.

This item is not a toy as it is very delicate and contains many small parts. The figures can be dismantled with care - for ease of dressing them and so on, it's possible to gently remove the arms/head/legs etc.
