Belgium Handcrafted Female Lace Maker Sitting in Wooden Chair (Side View)

Belgium Handcrafted Female Lace Maker Sitting in Wooden Chair (Side View)

Figurine of female lace maker from Bruges, Belgium. The doll is made from wood, with ceramic head and hands. She is wearing a black velvet dress, shawl, and apron with lace trim. She has a lace scarf on her head. Her facial features are hand painted on her face. She has red, wooden Dutch shoes. She is sitting on a wooden chair, and on her lap she has a pillow, bobbins and thread. To make the lace, the lacemakers pin a pattern to the pillow, hang the bobbins and pass the bobbins over and under each other to weave the threads into lace. Tag says: "This typical Bruges doll is manufactured in limited quantities completely by hand. It is numbered and signed by the designer-manufacturer. This allows us to guarantee that each design can be considered virtually unique. Number 8H4 by J. Hebb, Bruges, Belgium." The figure is 9 inches (23 cm) tall.
