Armchair Pride or, my big gay dolls!

It is Gay Pride 2011, and Licca & Billy are celebrating the victory in New York! California must surely be next ^_^

I used to watch Pride every year when I lived in The City, I’m more retiring these days, but my heart is always there, as are many of my very dear ones, friends and family alike.

I’ve also been collecting porcelain dandy figurines. I love porcelain, but most of it, the good stuff, is so far beyond my reach.  So I’m targeting mid-century-regency twee pieces, and they can be had for a steal. I look for good color, and the faces must be well painted. And anything “made in japan” is fair game!  I love the dandies, some of them are so poncy that the sellers on eBay often mistake them for women, such as my Mint Bicorne figure below.

Lilac Derby is by Cordoy, and the Minty Green Bicorne is "Made in Japan"
