    Birgitte Frigast Porcelain Babies are adorable!

    Bertram and Fie

    If you love to collect dolls, you should consider this wonderful collection created by Danish designer, Birgitte Frigast.  Birgitte Frigast designs every face herself and, with the help of a doll sculptor, creates the final look. The personality and clothes of the pixie are also designed by Birgitte Frigast, down to the very last detail. There is nothing left to chance in the production process. Birgitte Frigast checks everything from the initial stages until the pixie is finished and has "come to life".

    The porcelain, which the head, hands and feet are made of, is of a quality normally only used by the likes of Royal Copenhagen. The porcelain mould is only used 30 times, after which time it is discarded and replaced by a new one. This means that our pixies always have 100% perfect features.  The faces are different, giving each doll a different personality.  After glazing the porcelain is fired three times to ensure colour-fastness and prevent fading.

    All of the figures come in a beautiful gift box which is not only attractive packaging but also provides the pixies with a good resting place if they are not to be displayed all year round. These dolls are a fabulous gift (especially for new parents and their baby) that can be handed down over the generations.  they must be seen to be really appreciated. If you are interested in availability, just e-mail us at lenaole130@ gmail.com  or call 414-745-4362. Both babies are regularly $29.95, now on sale for $24.95 each including shipping.
