This wax over porcelain doll set was created by famed German doll artist Hildegard Gunzel and poignantly captures the defining naivete of Pierrot, the stock character of Comedia dell'Arte and pantomime, who in modern times embodies the sad clown pining for the love of his Muse. His unmasked white face with teardrops spilling from his haunting blue blown glass eyes, and his iconic loose white blouse, make him the unmistakably passionate clown. Hildegard captures the soul of this melancholy character as well as the beauty of the Muse, his amore, with her inspired, emotionally informed sculpts. Muse is rendered with the delicate beauty and detail that Hildegard is famous for in her wax over porcelain doll art, with her expressive blue blown glass eyes and human hair wig . . . It is easy to see why the gentle Pierrot is pining for her.

Capturing the romance and poignancy of the story, in our opinion this particular set is the most exquisite representation Hildegard Gunzel has done to date. The set includes also their little poodle, Coco, who stands ready to perform tricks with the hoop for an eager audience. Very rare worldwide edition of only 10 sets. Overall height of three pieces is 100 cm (c. 41 inches). The entire tragi-comic set includes Muse, Pierrot, poodle Coco with hoop. Muse has handmade European hair wig, cashmire cape, antique embroidery. Pierrot has pearl embroidered silk clothing, leather shoes and mohair wig. Coco has mohair fur and porcelain face, legs. This museum quality set is as choice as it is rare.
