Hand Painted Tole Artist Nutcracker Diorama: $75.00
This 14" tall and 10" long painted wooden tole scenic display is a Nutcracker Artist with all
of her paint tubes and bottles, wooden paint palette, brushes, tracing and palette papers,
and artist smock. She is standing in front of her easel, upon which is the
semi-finished painting of a bird on a rotted out tree trunk. The nutcracker
has long brown, curly hair, under a blue artist cap, and blue eyes. She is
holding a paint palette and rag in one hand, and, in the other hand, she
holds a paint brush, a bag filled with artist paraphernalia over her arm.
The tole figure is wearing a painted on artist apron, smudged with paint,
and well stocked with painted brushes and a small painting of some
M & M's. She is wearing painted on dungarees and white sneakers with blue
seams. Paint bottles lay at her feet and under her easel, as well as paint
tubes, a pencil and a brush.
The artist tole figure is supported by a special wooden base, which,
itself, is resting on a larger wooden base that holds her easel and her
dropped paint bottles and paraphernalia.
This Artist Nutcracker is sprayed with a gloss varnish to protect
the beauty of the paint. The tole figure ships cushioned with plastic peanuts
in a no-bend cardboard box.
