Vintage Resin Ballerina En Pointe Figurine Botero Style
Delivering from: London, United Kingdom (UK)
A fun decorative figurine of a dancing full-figured ballerina standing in her ballet shoes en pointe in position V and pirouetting. I have been unable to exactly identify its provenance but it dates to late 1960s/70s to Sweden. The ballerina stands on a circular wooden plinth base and is made from synthetic custom molded resin. Hand-painted and wearing a white leotard with a hairband holding back her thick curly hair with fun pursed lips. Her eye makeup is particular striking and fun highlighting her blue eyes. She looks as though she’s practicing in a ballet class for a future performance. In good vintage condition with some wear to be wooden base.
The resin is a little uneven in places but this looks as though it occurred during the making of the piece because there is no colour difference which you would expect if it was a repair. I only noticed it when I was photographing it up close. There are some small chips in places which are illustrated in the images.
Similar in style to Beryl Cook or Fernando Botero artwork.
