Limited Edition of 100 Letizia of Florence, Italy handcrafts each whimsical kitchen witch with traditional features and meticulously finished clothing made of fabric that she collects from local Florentine markets. According to legend, a kitchen witch, or ''La Befana'', will bring good luck and ward off bad spirits. Every bit of each witch is made solely by Letizia. She begins by molding the face, arms, and legs from plaster of Paris. She then sews each element of the witch's wardrobe, including her swirling patterned skirt, and hand-paints each adorable facial expression. She even creates the broom herself from wood and straw. Handcrafted exclusively for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan. Dimensions - 12.5 inches by 6 inches.
