now available in my shop, the my first in my new series, a charlotte assemblage entitled “the keeper of dark and light”. i’m not very creative with my naming sometimes.
this wee charlotte is the older type, from around the 1860s i’m told, instead of the more typical 1880s-90s style (see her painted eyes). she has been partially rusted because who doesn’t love a bit o’ rust sometimes?
atop the little metal box charlotte resides, is an antique pocket watch winder (i have no idea what those are called)… which is all sitting upon a vintage gear. above that, a taxidermy eye on another gear i rusted and antique brass beads nailed into the wooden base.
here is a close-up of the charlotte and vial with porcupine quills and an animal tooth (love her eyes!):
vintage french book page text and crackle are behind the charlotte.
here is a close up of the eye. and (i blush!!) the little mishap of the hanger on the back poking through. it looks cool and intentional though, in a way.
at the bottom hangs a small fleur d’lis i aged. it actually hangs straight but i took this photo with the piece laying on its back.
here is a side-view of the piece laying down…
the whole thing measures about 4.5″ x 6″ and is available for purchase in my shop (at a reduced rate due to the hanger mishap — it still hangs totally perfectly though, of course).
sold. thank you so much, miss renee!
