The doll is hand-painted porcelain with jointed arms and legs so that she can stand or sit. Standing she measures just under 1 3/4" tall.
I just couldn't find the right shade of brown for her costume so I had to hand-dye the silk for her dress and bonnet. She has silk underwear, vintage lace socks and tiny silk shoes with leather soles. Her dress is trimmed with vintage French lace and her bonnet is decorated with silky braid and pure silk buds and bows trim.
I'm really rather pleased with her and so enjoyed working on her that I am now planning to make a few more in different colours. So for this week only I will offer blog readers the chance to order one of these little toy dolls at the special price of £30 (including P&P anywhere in the world) in the colours of your choice. She also comes complete with doll box with vintage illustrated lid.
To order just email me to discuss your requirements, putting 'Blog Offer' in the subject heading.
