Euc Gladys Boalt The Nutcracker Sugar Plum Fairy Ornament (1989):
An experienced needleworker and fabric store owner, Gladys Boalt had already been creating wonderful boutique items for an exclusive New York shop when she was asked to try her hand at creating soft-sculpture Christmas ornaments. More than twenty years later, Ms. Boalt is the proud creator of an exclusive line of historically accurate, highly-detailed figural ornaments that are so inspiring, they have even been chosen to adorn the White House Christmas tree.
Each Boalt ornament is a small work of art involving as many as fifty separate steps. Completely hand-sewn by talented members of Ms. Boalt's New England women's cooperative, the little figures and tiny costumes are complete with authentic period details. Gladys Boalt personally hand paints every face, then signs and dates each piece.
This sale is for a Gladys Boalt The Nutcracker Sugar Plum Fairy ornament. The handmade, hand-painted ornament, which measures approximately 4-3/4” wide and 7-1/4” tall, is dated 1989 and is in excellent used condition with minor signs of wear. Please see the sale listing pictures and contact the seller with any questions.
