FIGURINE - Afternoon at Ascot 906033001-T
Inspired by the gorgeous ensemble worn by the title character in the 1964 film "My Fair Lady" when she makes her first appearance among Britain’s upper crust at the annual opening day at the races, comes “Afternoon At Ascot” — a stunning lady figurine that beautifully recreates the pomp and circumstance of Edwardian England’s high society.
After reviewing countless stills from the movie, Master Craftsmen individually sculpt this figurine to display glamorous details like a hand-etched and rubbed lace pattern to the ruffled sleeve cuffs adorned with sculpted flowers … from handcrafted ribbon that wraps the dress in an eye-catching manner to the magnificence of her wide-brimmed hat. Then, talented artisans hand-paint each figurine from the hem of her gown to the brim of her hat, including adding a glossy finish to the sculpted ribbon to give the appearance of shiny satin.
For a chic finishing touch, her sweeping hat is graced with genuine feather plumes and a dazzling faux gem that makes her entire ensemble as memorable as the gown from the movie that inspired it.
Measures approx. 8.25" (21 cm) high.
