By John E.N. Hearsey- 1969 Edition
Let them eat Cake!
This delightful paper sculpture has been carved out of 270 pages of Marie Antoinette!
I managed to rescue Marie Antoinette’s sillouhette and install her safely inside a glass cloche bedecked with a paper bouquet head piece.
The perfect gift for someone you know who loves anything a little fancy, the classics, royalty or simply eating cake and having a good read!
Display it on your bookshelf or gift it to your vintage loving friend as a whimsical surprise.
All book sculptures come complete with all the information from the book they came from on a label on the base so that you have it’s history for all time!
These Foolhouse Book sculptures are one-offs and a unique bespoke gift for anyone of any age.
The Cloche is 10cm in diameter and 20cm high.
BTW. If you’ve managed to read this far, you will find out that I often have many more secret vintage booksafes and book sculptures 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, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and enquire as to what I have that has not made it up onto my website yet. 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.
