UNIQUE DOLL 'Jolie Noel' Christmas Tree Doll Light #1 by artist Bill O'Connor...
Is it a light, is it a Christmas Tree, is it a Doll??? It is all of that and more! I have searched for another one but never have found one like this one. It is an artist creation and you have to see it in person to appreciate its' beauty and UNIQUENESS. I call it the Christmas Tree Doll Lamp No.1 prototype by Bill O'Connor who named her "JOLIE NOEL" in reference to the Christmas Holiday Season, no doubt. I love UNIQUE things that are scarce and/or are one of a kinds especially inspired by talented artists! Item is very sturdy.
Jolie Noel stands 28" tall and is 14" across at her widest part which is her lighted skirt section. Her hat, which is section on top of her bald head, lights up. Her skirt lights up. There is a rocker off and on switch and long cord to plug into regular house outlet.
Jolie Noel face and limbs are made of very fine porcelain and fired, all very nicely done. Her fingers are magnificent, so delicately fine. Her facial features are hand painted and done very well with plenty of detailing. Detailing right down to her feet in a high heel position. See photos as they speak louder than any words I can describe. Sections of the tinsel tree part are all poseable and most of them have colored glass Christmas balls on them. The gold plate on the top of the wood is inscribed; ['Jolie Noel' (1 of 25) by Bill O'Connor 1991] .
I know from experience even though an artist has good intentions of making 25 of a certain item, does not mean that their ever were 25 made. It all depended on supply and demand and orders at that when the first one, the prototype, was put out there. This 'Jolie Noel' was the very first one, the prototype and is number 1.
The entire tree and tree top are fully poseable so you can adjust any limbs as you wish! Amazing piece of art work and it's the FIRST one realized, signed #1.
