  • 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 $29.95 each including shipping.

    The bunad from Setesdal

    The bunad from Setesdal The bunad from Setesdal has one of the longest traditions, being one of the oldest folk costumes in the country. The skirt has had the same design since the last part of the 17th Century, and maybe even longer. The women wore a frieze skirt with a leather belt for daily use. For church or festive occasions they would wear a black skirt over this white one. Brides would wear several skirts. The costume used today is the style used for church. This bunad has two skirts, a white skirt under and a black over skirt. Note the “fat” calves this woman has. The story goes that the men were always looking for strong and healthy women to marry, so the young girls would stuff extra socks in their stockings to appear to be of hefty stock.
