This is a beautiful doll, her wax head is turned to the left, she has delicately painted eyes and brows, the grey hair is wax coated and a plait is wrapped around her head, she is all in original clothes, the skirt is over card and makes an enclosed shape, she has a basket of intricate wares and is under her original glass dome on wooden base
--13 1/4in. (33.5cm.) over all height including dome and base
An almost identical doll was sold at Christie's in London as part of the Faith Eaton collection - this example had a paper label the underside "Henrietta", it was suggested at the time this would be by the wax doll/sculptor Henrietta Wade, her examples are normally all delicate wax including hair and clothes, perhaps this a slightly later example of her work?
Please note domes are very difficult to ship, she could come without her dome at a reasonable price, she could come with her dome, packed well in a smaller package at a slightly more expensive price; or I can could pack her in a much large box and charge a higher price; either way I would not guarantee the dome arriving in one piece. But it would be entirely up to you how it was shipped, so please state when making order.
