During carnival time in Venice a mask is required for the celebrations ahead. This charming new Mask Seller from The English Lady Company offers revelers a colorful selection of classic masks-each providing a beguiling disguise perfect for the Masquerade Ball that traditionally ends the week-long festivities. In a dramatic deep red gown with gold highlights that add definition and sparkle, the Mask Seller figurine superbly combines story-telling with ceramic art. Each figure is handmade and decorated in fine bone china.
The atmosphere of the carnival is captured in the English Ladies Companies range of fairground figures. Two new installments have been added to the range. The dynamic Jester captures the essence of the fair with his strident pose while he plays his fiddle. Dressed in vibrant colors, the Jester is dressed in a traditional checked style tunic with a jaunty 5-point hat. The Balloon Seller is the perfect partner to the Jester. Decorated in complementary colors, the Balloon Seller holds on to nine colorful balloon and carries a pretty purse for her coins.
The first figure in the series, The Mask Seller, features her colorful masquerade masks tumbling from her arm. The second installment, The Puppeteer is holding traditional story characters including Mr. Punch and Pierrot.
Each of the figures in the Carnival Collection has been skillfully modeled to show the smallest details and these beautiful figures are a wonderful addition to any collection.
