We have always been enthralled by the antique little cotton people and animals made in little German cottage industries to grace feather-trees in Europe, and later throughout America. The whimsical personality and life-like 3-dimensions make these ornaments absolutely irresistible! There is no end to the variety and creativity that Gail can put into these. We use different types of all antique cotton to “spin” the legs and arms, and our best early cotton batting for the coats, hats, trims, and other details.
Our brunette ballerina is twirling on one toe, with necklace spinning! Materials include: antique cotton covered over vintage pipe-cleaner wire, antique scrap girl’s head, antique metallic gold ribbon (even on her tiny feet), antique metallic thread, antique metallic gold netting over antique crepe paper, antique buckrum lacework (under skirt).HANDMADE AND SIGNED BY GAIL GIAIMO.
