The last of a quartet of Butterfly Ladies, with a name and coloring inspired by the Painted Lady butterfly, this Royal Doulton figurine stands on a blue veined marble effect base. An elegant display piece, this Painted Lady confidently strikes a dramatic pose, one hand on her hip, the other stretched out in the air to turn her shawl into sprawling butterfly wings. And what beautiful wings: an elaborate pattern of circles blending red and russet hues, complemented by the sweeping feathers in her hat.
. A slender legged beauty in bold red shoes, she also wears a swirling dress of pink hues that all but covers the base as she moves. At the subtle centre of the piece, her figure-hugging bodice features linear designs as something of a contrast. You will find that real nature’s Painted Lady butterfly (Cynthia Cardui) has orange, tan, and even pink hues on its wings, with white and black tips.
Spread your wings in style. Drawing on the rich pedigree of Leslie Harradine’s 1925 vintage series, The Butterfly Women, these new Prestige figures bring a touch of Art Deco panache. Designed by Valerie Annand and hand made in England.
