Antique lace appliqués

I am a great admirer of anything Comedia dell'arte and was just overjoyed upon stumbling over these beautiful prints. Pierrot looks up beautiful Corallina whilst Colombina jealously glances over. The Pierrot is the protagonist of many early 20th C carnaval songs in Brazil , that probably explains my love of these beautiful characters as they have immense nostalgic value to a Brazilian childhood. Anyway they are here paired with my vintage appliqués.
Um Pierrot apaixonado...
