Papier Mache Milliners Head
£135.00 Sold out
Papier-mache Hat Stand or Milliner's Head, Europe, early to mid-19th century, female form hand-decorated with black hair, blue eyes, and rose bud red lips.
She is made from papier-mache covered with gesso.
She has minor wear, probably due to a drunken night on the town, none of which detracts from the drop-dead decorative charm of this little French madam.
33cm high x 18cm wide approx.
