Venetian Lady of the 1700s
he 1700s represented a period of decadence and decline for Venice, but the Venetians countered their citys fading star with exciting frivolity, lightness, caprice and elegance in all that they did, from the Carnival-like parties to the Goldoni comedies. Fashion accentuated shape and detail, including the large, feminine hair-dress and the abundant skirts held up by whale bones. Painted faces, gems, jewels, gilded buckles, and the unfailing three-cornered hat completed the ornate image of the noble past of Venice.This marionette stands approximately 18" (44cm) tall.
