Portrait Reproduction Gown

Lais Corinthiaca
Portrait Reproduction Gown
This gown is based on a 1926 portrait by Hans Holbien the younger, a famous painter of the renaissance era.
Hans Holbien was court painter for Henry the VIII and painted many court personalities and royal figures of the renaissance.  The portrait of Lais Corinthiaca is said to show the mistress of Greek artist Apelles, and was sat for by Magdalina Offenburg, a friend of Hans Holbien.
The gown is made of deep burgundy dupioni silk, and deep gold dupioni silk.  The gown is fully lined and snaps at the back.  The undersleeves and neck ruffle are made of soft white cotton. The gown is accented with puff and slash styling at the bodice and lower sleeve, and gold delica beads with white faux pearls.  Her head piece is a heavily beaded headband with a gold pintucked dupioni snood and deep antique gold delica beads.  The snood is made to hold any long hair on a Tonner doll.  Make sure you take a close look at the handiwork. Her necklace is also made of deep antique gold delica beads.

As with all of our items, great attention is paid to accurate historical look and details.
