Faith Would Sculpt The Original "Little Person" Character/doll In Clay, Then A "master Mold Maker" Would Create A Mold Into Which The "porcelain Artisan" Would Pour The Porcelain "slip" To Obtain The "green Ware" Which, After Careful Cleaning, Would Be Fired In A Kiln. Next Would Come The Porcelain Painter, Body Maker, Costume Maker, Wig Maker, &, Where Necessary, The Leather Worker, Weaver, Metal Worker, Glass Blower, Woodworker, & Any Other Artisans Required To Complete The Piece. Within A Few Years, EFFANBEE Doll Company Asked Her To Design Dolls For Them, & Her Career Took On The New Dimension Of Designing Dolls & Gift Ware For Not Only EFFANBEE, But Also ENESCO, SILVESTRI/BALOS, DAKIN, DOLLSPART, & Others.The Founder Of The National Institute Of American Doll Artists, Helen Bullard, Has Written Faith’s Biography, & Seeley Ceramics Has Produced Two Books Outlining & Explaining Her Sculpting Techniques.Up For Auction Is Faith’s Interpretation Of The "BLUE FAIRY", Limited Edition 6/25, WICKET ORIGINALS, 1986. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS PARTICULAR CHARACTER IS A PIECE OF DOLL MAKING HISTORY IN THE USA! Faith Is Well Known For Her Creativity & The Abundance Of Her Designs – Especially Interpretations Of Children’s Stories & Fairy Tales. This Particular Character, The "BLUE FAIRY" Is Her Original Interpretation Of The Character From The Original 1883 Carlo Collodi Novel THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO Called "THE FAIRY WITH THE TURQUOISE HAIR". She Repeatedly Appears At Critical Moments In Pinocchio’s Wanderings To Admonish The Little Wooden Puppet To Avoid Bad Or Risky Behavior. Although The Naively Willful Marionette Initially Resists Her Good Advice, He Later Comes To Follow Her Instruction. She In Turn Protects Him, And Later Enables His Assumption Of Human Form, Contrary To The Prior Wooden Form.The Character Is The Inspiration For The BLUE FAIRY In Disney’s Animated Adaption Of The Story. THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO Is Considered A Canonical Piece Of Children’s Literature & Has Inspired Hundreds Of New Editions, Stage Plays, Merchandising & Movies, Such WALT DISNEY’s Iconic Animated Version, & Commonplace Ideas Such As A Liar’s Long Nose. According To Extensive Research Done By The Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi In The Late 1990s & Based On UNESCO Sources, THE ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO Has Been Adapted In Over 260 Languages Worldwide. That Makes It The Most Translated Non-religious Book In The World, & One Of The Best-selling Books Ever Published. According To Francelia Butler, It Remains "the Most Widely Read Book In The World After The Bible."These Original Porcelain Characters From "Wicket Originals" Were Only Available Directly To A Select Group Of Collectors & Have Been Passed Down Or Sold From Those Collectors.IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF RETAINING A RECORD OF THE "PROVENANCE" (HISTORY OF OWNERSHIP) OF THESE FINE COLLECTIBLES. PERSONALLY, I CAN DOCUMENT EACH STAGE OF OWNERSHIP (A CLEAN PROVENANCE) FOR THIS PARTICULAR COLLECTIBLE. The "BLUE FAIRY’s" Head, Hair, Hands, & Lower Arms Are Hand Painted Porcelain, As Are Her Lower Legs, & Slippers. Pay Special Attention To The Detailed Hand Painting Of Her Face & Hair, As Well As The Delicate Detail Of Her Hands. Her Body Is A Stuffed Fabric Over A Wire Armature. PERFECT FOR THE COLLECTOR OF STORYBOOK CHARACTER MEMORABILIA, PARTY/EVENT PLANNERS, OR JUST AS A SMALL PIECE OF THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN DOLL MAKING & ENTREPRENEURSHIP!THIS MASTERFULLY CRAFTED CHARACTER SCULPTURE WOULD MAKE A WONDERFUL SHOWPIECE ON THE LIBRARY SHELF OR ON THE TOP OF A CHEST OF DRAWERS IN THE ROOM OF YOUR OWN LITTLE PRINCESS!CHARACTER MEASUREMENTS:Height = 23" (28" W/hat)Width = 6"Depth = 6"Weight = 3.5 LbsTHIS IS A VERY RARECOLLECTIBLE – A FIND ONE IS NOT LIKELY TO COME BY AGAIN IN PRIVATE HANDS!!ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE!PLEASE REVIEW PICTURES AS THEY PROVIDE A VISUAL AID TO MY NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION!!CONDITIONMany Of My Items Are Vintage Or Artisan; Accordingly, There May Be Some Issues With Individual Pieces That Are Associated With Either The Passage Of Time Or The Artisan Individuality Of The Item.
