Nalo by Marlena H. Nielsen
A beautiful young woman from Africa's Ivory Coast...expertly portrayed in a fine porcelain collector doll.
From her curls peeking out from beneath her beautiful head wrap to her softly rounded cheeks, Nalo is the picture of serenity and elegance. Her head, lower legs and arms are handcrafted of fine porcelain, and her expressive facial features are skillfully hand painted.
Nalo's wrap-around skirt, know n as a "lapa," is decorated with an intricate pattern native to Western Africa. Her clothing also includes a brilliant blue shirt and red rope-soled shoes. A wide scarf called a "gele" is wrapped around her head, while beautiful beads circle her graceful neck. Golden hoop earrings provide the perfect finishing touch to her stunning attire. Nalo carries a wicker basket filled with "grain" that is yours at no extra charge.
As you assurance of authenticity, Nalo is inscribed with Marlena H. Nielsen's signature.
Actual size is 18" tall.
