I must say, I really enjoy making Easter sets. I love this holiday time of year, even more than Christmas. Everything is in a stage of renewal - the sun is shining, the greenery is starting to peek through and the hope of spring is everywhere. I hope you enjoy these new toys and thanks for stopping by!
Mathilda is 4 inches tall and is made from hand-dyed beige German Shulte mohair. The mohair has been gently aged and distressed, leaving a few tiny bare patches. Mathilda has amber German glass eyes, a gently waxed nose, ultrasuede paw pads and has been shaded on the face, ears and paws with permanent heat-set paints. This shading gives Mathilda a lovely vintage look. She is stuffed with traditional excelsior and stainless steel shot for weight and simply decorated with a vintage silk ribbon around her neck, with an old bell.
Mathilda comes with a sweet baby chick. They are the best of friends and Mathilds loves to hop on and go for a ride. The chick 1s 3 ¾ inches tall, has glass eyes and is very realistic - it even cheeps, when the button on the bottom is pushed. I did not make the chick.
Mathilda also comes with a hand-made white beeswax bunny. The beeswax bunny is 2 3/4 inches tall and is made from an antique mold in my collection. The bunny has hand painted eyes and is decorated with a silk ribbon.
Also included in this set, is an Easter ornament - 1 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches. The ornament is a vintage reproduction Easter postcard of a bunny head and pussywillows. It is decorated with glass glitter, set between beveled glass and heavy art paper, and sealed with solder with a decorative edge. This set is designed and made by me, and will come with a signed hang-tag. It is an adult collectible and not meant for children.
