Yellow Fairy, assemblage art doll pendant
This one of a style that I am calling “The Fairies”. This one is the Yellow Fairy. A salvaged, brass finding holds a yellow swirled glass bead for her head. Below that, a pair of warm toned, mother-of-pearl “wings” hang behind a marbled wooden egg. A 30” (76 cm) black cord hangs from the top of the bead. The figure is about 3 1/2” (8.5 cm) long. The eggs came to me already painted, and I think they were probably made some time in the 70's. They are wooden inside and the marbling appears to be a mix of good quality enamel paints, possibly even automotive. While the marbling is very well done, it has the small bubbles, blank areas and cracks you would expect from this kind of hand-done finish.
