Flea Market Friday

A lavish mini-theatre, worthy of the queen herself! This 13"high x 7" wide x 6" deep theatre is constructed on a sturdy papier mache base and embellished with vintage and reproduction papers, jewelry, crepe papers, ribbons, organza, rhinestones and glitter. The frame has been gold leafed and Dresden scrap and pink "pearls" have been added to enhance the drama. It's difficult to see all the detail on the interior - there are several layers of embellishments.

Please click on detail photos to see quality of materials and workmanship.

The character (a Tom Tierney paper doll of Marie Antoinette) is on a separate stand. She can be removed if you have a doll you'd like to display in the theatre.

Please note that although children seem to be intrigued by my work, they are not toys. They are well-constructed of quality materials, but are designed for display and not hard play!

The portico styled awning is held up by Florentine fine gold glittered scrolls, and houses two pink and gold glittered swans, bearing pink feathers and a gold-coloured royal crown.
The price of $95 includes free shipping to the continental United States.

That's my Friday offering! If you are interested in acquiring this piece, it's the first listing in my Etsy shop.

I'll be back later today to show off some other new goodies that have arrived for me! However, right now, I'm off to make what-I-hope-will-be wonderful things from paper and ink and stuff I find!
I hope you're going to do exactly the same thing today! Commemorate this gorgeous day with a gorgeous piece of art!
