The Dame of Drury Lane is a lovely witch who haunts the theaters and streets of Drury Lane.
She is constructed of cloth with trims of ribbon, lace, braid, fringe and decorative stitching. Her embellishments are a brass frog at the waist of peplum jacket, and a lady bug on the bow at the back. The jacket is secured with a glass jet button and the outer edge trimmed in braiding. A vintage brooch is at her throat—right under her pointy chin—sitting on a high lace collar. She is sporting a lace covered top hat fascinator trimmed with a spider, a butterfly and curled plumes. This sits on her ever so orange mohair “do.” Her overskirt is open in the front to show flashy fringed bloomers, fancy leggings and high crystal button shoes.
No, she does not carry a broom but rather a sheer fabric black parasol with a red spider nestled in the lace trim and a black jet embedded in the handle.
Some of the fabrics are Halloween and others art deco. Witches are not just for Halloween you know.
She stands on a wooden block at 21”—not including her plumes. One foot is stationary and the other kicked up as if she is dancing.
I do hope you enjoy her!
