These reproductions are inspired by dolls found in European and American households in the early 1800's. Head, hands and feet are constructed of a durable composition clay. the primitive body is made of muslin. The entire doll has been given an antiqued finish. Hands and feet are attached with ecru ribbon, the upper arms are stuffed and attached to the dress separately. All clay parts on the doll are hand sculpted using no molds. Not a toy.
This 18" doll is dressed in an antiqued muslin fabric. Her bust is layered with with thick scrolled lace and finished off with tan satin ribbon. Her hair is painted brown and sculpted into a curl cluster atop her head and a drop cluster on either side. She wears a scrolled lace headpiece that matches the lace on her gown. Earrings of freshwater pearls dangle from her ears. Her eyes are detailed but pupiless like older dolls. .
