Brief description. See detailed description below.
This gorgeous 1991 "A Christmas Prayer", a finely and meticulously hand crafted bisque porcelain doll, is the important first doll exclusively from The Hamilton Collection in association with Pemberton & Oakes. It was inspired by the art of one of America's Premiere child artists, Donald Zolan.
Her head, arms and legs are crafted of fine, bisque porcelain and she is delicately hand-painted and dressed in beautiful hand-tailored clothes including laced slippers. She is kneeling on a soft red pillow that has gold bows on each corner. She is kneeling reverently, her tiny hands clasped, ready for her nightly prayer. In this kneeling position, she measures approximately 14 1/2" tall.
"A Christmas Prayer", No. 4084Q, was issued in 1991 and retired in 1993. She has continued to increase in value as seen in the "1999 Price Guide to Limited Edition Collectibles" for $255.00. It will truly be a prized addition to any collection.
She is pre-owned and was purchased from the daughter of the original owner. She was delicately displayed, used to warm up the holidays, then neatly packed in her original box with packaging and paperwork and the original doll stand. She is certain to lighten your heart this holiday season and many years to come.

"Kneeling on a red velvet pillow, a little girl pauses for her evening prayers. With her shining eyes raised and her tiny hands clasped reverently, she whispers a well known prayer. "Now I lay me down to sleep..." she begins, and all the wonder of a child's innocence and faith shine in her radiant little face.
Exquisitely crafted of fine bisque porcelain and lovingly hand-painted, "A Christmas Prayer" is the very first collection doll inspired by the work of award-winning artist, Donald Zolan.
Through the finest porcelain artistry, `A Christmas Prayer" captures the inner beauty, joy and innocence of a you child. Dressed in a soft white velour nightgown, with satin ribbons as red as holly berries and lace as white as snow, she simply glows with the joy of the holiday!
You can invite this little angel into your home at the affordable price of $95 ...(plus $4.60 shipping and handling).
Given the popularity of Donald Zolan's art, demand may be strong for this landmark premiere.
