This 31” French Pierrot is dressed in real silk peau de soie and lace. Even his fine-gauge stockings and dancing slippers are silk. With ribbon trim and covered French Blue buttons against the champagne fabric, his sewn-on ensemble pleases our eyes. His warm brown glass eyes set in his plumply- contoured smiling face cheer us, and we can only imagine the stories he has to tell. Jointed at neck, shoulders, elbows, and hips, he stands with support, his legs and feet showing a graceful ballet turnout. His papier-mâché head can swivel completely around and nod from side to side. His hands are even painted to resemble wearing top-stitched kidskin gloves. We cannot detect any damage or repair on this Pierrot.
