Elegant Ladies from Sergiev Posad (Элегантные дамы из Сергиева Посада). A fine example of a miniature art doll from Sergiev Posad with many enhancements and decorative elements. The potal beading (gold foil that imitates gilding) is strategically placed inside the white flowers and turquoise blue potal. The effect is that of elegant butterflies floating about. And the subtle watercolors of pink and light blue contribute nicely. The maidens are elegant green-eyed ladies with elaborate curls and a lacy shawl.
Sergiev Posad, circa 1995-99. Signed (initials) and noted by the artist. Fine condition. 4¾" down to 1¼". 1 only, as shown.
