A true representative of the elegant ladies that populated the ballrooms of the palaces in the XVIII century, this lady is making us part of a love story as she is actually sending a kiss through fan language, that was fashionable in those times.
This romantic lady is the pure essence of Lladro. The sculptural perfection of the piece is readily visible in the realism and heightened detail of her make-up, the feathers in her hat, the dress, the handmade fan, the movement of her sleeves. Ladies used their fans to convey secret love messages to their suitors at balls in the palace. Everything here has been studiously conceived to turn a static porcelain piece into a true love story.
The handmade fan is a noteworthy feature of this striking figurine. The textures and ornamentation of the lady's dress showcase the talent and craftsmanship of the brand's artists. Her costume is rounded off by an elegant headdress with feathers and flowers made petal by petal, very much to the taste of Marie Antoinette, the queen who completely revolutionised the fashions of the French royalty. 24.75in H x 11.75in L
