VINTAGE PAPER SCULPTURE
This Handmaid is At The Ready
She is carved from a:
1911 Edition of Etheldra the Ready
By Mrs. George de Horne Valzeye
These whimsical paper sculptures are handmade and captured inside a glass cloche. (The cloche measures 11cm in diameter and is 20cm tall)
When I make the Secret Vintage Booksafes I try not to waste any of the paper i carve out and re-use it to make these endearing three dimensional book sculptures for the bookish amongst us. They are a delightfully dimensional addition to bookshelves and mantles and great gifts for the book lovers. Not one is the same and all have an individuality defined by their paper adornments or the back page on their reverse.
All the information of the book that they were carved from is on a label on the base so you will always have the details kept with it.
BTW. If you’ve managed to read this far, you will find out that I often have many more secret vintage booksafes on my shelf in the studio or in the process of being made-up, so please if you’re looking for something special for someone special, from a certain book or a particular sillouhette shape – email me at email@example.com and enquire as to what I can do. I can send you photos of what i have or I can let you know what custom options can be done to fulfil a special wish.
