Wooden Dolls Mother Fish & Child

Alexander Girard, 1952

Alexander Girard was one of the decisive figures in post-War American design, alongside Charles and Ray Eames as well as George Nelson. The focus of his broad oeuvre was on textile design, and a key source of inspiration for him was his passion for the popular art of South America, Asia and East Europe. The Wooden Dolls, which Girard created for his own home in Santa Fe and made himself, were likewise inspired by his own extensive collection of works of popular art. Half decorative element, half toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally intended only for personal use. They are produced based on originals found in the Girard Estate held by the Vitra Design Museum. 

Materials: solid pinewood, hand painted. Delivered with a brochure in a high-quality wooden box.
