Doll House Latxa 1

Latxa Flock


These Latxa are part of my Doll House series. At approximately 3 3/4" tall, they are on the 1:12 scale. They are porcelain covered with a woven mohair fur. Another special aspect is that the porcelain is all airbrushed before being fired.

All my creatures are handcrafted in my Asheville, NC studio using porcelain, castable stone and imported woven fur from Steiff-Schulte in Germany.

Size: 3 3/4" Tall
