African-American Heritage Figurine:  Parents with Infant
Click to enlarge image(s)
Impossibly tall and thin, these parents are elegantly dressed for an auspicious occasion. Father wears a knee-length black brocade frock coat over a floor-length pleated black skirt.  His shirt is sparkling white and sets off his black tie. Mother's form-fitting scoop-necked sleeveless blue-black floral gown is accented with diagonal gold ribbons and sweeps the floor. A gold ribbon ties her hair into a neat bun. Although mother bears the responsibility for carrying their swaddled child, father accepts his role as protector by resting one hand on mother's shoulder and caresses the baby's head with the other hand. Hair textures are realistically tightly curled and facial details are expertly painted. Even though this figurine is exceptionally well executed, it should not be mistaken to be from the well-known ©Mahogany Princess collection which it superficially resembles and may have been its inspiration. Resin, imported. Collected prior to 2006.
