Hand painted Roly-Poly dolls, like weebles, wobble but they don't fall down!!!
This is a toy with weight attached to base causing it always to recover its standing and to make a pleasant sound. In work the artists used tempera with egg emulsion and fine polecat brushes.
All the drawings of this item are made by the real artist so delicate and subtle, that as a whole the doll is just breathtaking! Everything is shining and sparkling.
Egg-tempera paint is the primary medium used to paint the composition on this doll. The palette is full of colors that are bright and vibrant. All aspects of the scene are intricately detailed with fine lines created with precise brushwork. Gold and aluminum paints are also used to add even more detail. There is a great sense of balance and linear flow in these compositions.
The doll measures
5 3/4" high and 3 3/4" at the bottom part
