Kelli from There is no place like home
The essence of Victorian childhood is exhibited in the idealized children of Greenaway’s work. Her dreamy little figures seem almost melancholy as they prance through the English countryside unaware of time or place. Their outfits of frilly smocks, mob caps and sunbonnets seem Regency in appearance but are none-the-less the figments of Miss Greenaway’s girlish imagination. They are an outcome of her unwillingness to leave childhood behind.
This is my recent find. This is a lovely example of Kate Greenway's style, which I just adore. This piece is in perfect condition , made of porcelin or bisque, dating back to the 1800's. The back of her is open for toothpicks or well...I would put flowers in it. I am just in love with this little piece.
