14-1/2 inch I.V. Roberts Porcelain China OOAK Artist Doll in Antebellum Style, 1970s

Welcome to Mama Jo's House of Dolls where every doll comes with a surprise!

I.V. Roberts was a good friend of my great aunt, renowned wax doll maker Gladys MacDowell. There's a porcelain doll they did together in the store (Item 0225). This one, circa 1970s, is quite special with her jet black hair molded into a bun and around her ears and wearing a very pretty, vibrant violet lace-trimmed antebellum style dress with a black velvet ribbon to match her hair and portions of her delicately painted perfect face. The dress fabric is like a dotted swiss with little bumps of purple to give a beautiful texture. Her "skin" is luminous white porcelain china. Look at her pretty black shoes with gold laces and soft snow white slip and bloomers. I've named her "Bianca." Her upper arms, upper legs, and torso are cloth. There's some aging on the white sleeves attached to her sleeves. No chips, cracks. A stand is included.
