Pia, Art doll by Tom Francirek & Andre Oliveira

Tandem of talented artists Tom Francirek & Andre Oliveira has created a gallery of collectible dolls known to all doll collectors and art lovers. Each of their unique handmade dolls exists in a single copy, which explains its price of $ 5000. Tom Francirek & Andre Oliveira Art dolls are created from the finest and rich materials: fine silks, vintage laces, silk flowers, angora mohair, and unique porcelain. A particular attention should be paid to doll eyes that are painstakingly drawn by hand with multiple colors in order to achieve a realistic look. This Pia has beautiful hand painted hazel eyes. Her haute couture garment is sewn by hand, the bodice is made of silver metallic silk organza and black antique Chantilly lace.
