Katie the Tightrope Walker is an original issue in the McClelland Children's Circus collection based on the original artwork of acclaimed child portraitist John McClelland and produced by Reco International under the hallmark of the Knowles China Company. She comes with a stand, the base of which is a ring in the circus, with painted and textured "sand" and a rope upon which this little tightrope walker balances. The base is approximately 6 inches in diameter. She comes with the umbrella shown, which opens and closes, and keeps her steady as she proceeds with her act! Katie is dressed in a soft pink bodysuit with satin rosebud accents and a layered pink tulle tutu. Her tights and ballet slippers are hand-painted, with satin straps. The artist's name is engraved on her back, and she is hand numbered at the base of her neck.
