Lladro Porcelain Figurine, My Fair Lady. Size: 14.25" H. Bust of woman in dress.
“My Fair Lady” is the film version of “Pygmalion”, George Bernard Shaw’s most famous stage play. In the movie, a linguist wagers with a colleague that he can transform a cockney flower seller into a society lady only to end up falling in love with her. Some of the flower petals are made imitating lace edging. To achieve the realistic effect real lace was used and then liquid porcelain was poured over it. Afterwards they were shaped into petals and the fabric was trimmed. With the high temperatures during the firing, the actual tulle disappears and only the porcelain is left.
