Her gown is made of silver metallic silk organza with a black antique Chantilly lace, overlaying her bodice.  Antique black lace is delicately gathered and dances across her gown from her right hip, down and across to the bottom of the dress.  Her train is the most delicate French blue, black and dark champagne gold tissue silk jacquard, gathered and bustled at the back of her gown.  Her stockings are made of antique black silk tulle.

Her hat is made of silk jacquard and adorned with antique black velvet violets made in Prague, Czechoslovakia, with vintage pearls and adorned with teal blue, vintage hat netting and black feathers.  A hand made necklace of vintage pearls perfectly completes this one of a kind dressed Pia.

Tess (artist proof) SOLD

Tess is dressed in silver/gold (champagne) metallic silk organza with an antique silk tulle lace overlay.  She has the most delicate antique metallic silk lace trimming along the bustline which is also echoed in her dress. The bodice has a floral French metallic Chantilly lace that has been hand painted with French dyes to a majestic turquoise.  Her bodice is encrusted with moonstones and Swarovski crystals.

Her train is silk jacquard fabric with silver embroidery that has been hand dyed with French dyes to a beautiful turquoise. It is hand beaded with pearls, sequence, crystal beads and ornamented with silver filigrees. The beading was painstakingly done by Tom & Andre themselves over a 37 hour period.  The hem of the train has 2 rows of gently gathered, hand dyed turquoise silk ribbon.  Simply exquisite.

It has been a true privilege to have had Tom and Andre participate in our annual shows for well over a decade.  We are proud to say that this is their 13th year with The Dollery.  From the very beginning, their elegant dolls have attracted a loyal following with collectors, in large part due to the quality, artistry and beauty of their designs.  They work tirelessly at perfecting their craft, which is evident in every piece that leaves their studio.

Tom is in his 20th year as an artist and Andre in his 15th year, respectively.  Their vast knowledge of fabrics, style and appreciation for all things beautiful is unsurpassed.  They have accumulated an extensive collection of antique laces over the years.  When modern fabrics are incorporated into their costuming, only the finest silks, cottons and embroidered French laces are used.  Antique laces, vintage milliner’s trims, and antique silk flowers are used to embellish and adorn each of their creations.

Their porcelain editions are very small and usually range from 10 to 15 pieces.  However, when collectors purchase a “Francirek & Oliveira” edition piece, each is essentially a one of a kind.  No two pieces are alike, as each edition piece has a uniquely designed gown as well as hair color and/or style.  Only the finest angora mohair is used in the creation of their wigs.  Eyes are painstakingly painted by hand with multiple fires to achieve a very realistic look.  The ladies they create, all have the Francirek signature portrait painted eyes that not only gives them a life-like look but also a very dreamy and romantic feel.

If interested, arrangements for special custom one of a kind orders can be discussed with The Dollery.
