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- mottled skin, coffee stained fabrics. 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 a pink plaid gown with a braid neckline. An ivory satin ribbon is tied about her bust. Her sculpted hair is painted brown with curl clusters surrounding her face. She wears dangling earrings made of silvery washed glass beads. Her eyes are painted blue and detailed.
