This little doll is made of wood and has been dressed in mostly antique or vintage fabrics. She has painted features and a mohair wig. The limbs move at the shoulders and hips, but the clothing - which consists of a dress and a patterned silk petticoat is not removable. I set out to make one of these for myself as a doll that a larger doll could hold, but I enjoyed the process so I made more. I thought I would make 10 - a small collection for myself...but continue to make more. The doll itself (without the wig or stand) measures 2 1/2 inches, just about 3 inches with the wig. She is wearing a silk brocade dress made of awesome 18th century fabric. The colors in the fabric are wonderful and I only have a small piece. The bright pink is like the inside of a strawberry or maybe a geranium. It has great lime green accents as well as silver thread woven into the design which carries over to a beautiful accent on the back of her skirt. I also had another 18th century green fabric that make the perfect bodice accent. She has a thin silver necklace and the dress is trimmed with coordinating pinkish coral cord accents. As with all of the little ladies, she has a patterned gold silk petticoat. Her mohair wig is pale - almost white and has a kind of flamboyant flip of a curl along with an accent that picks up the colors in her dress. She comes with a little wooden stand that can be removed and a decorative oval box. Some of the fabrics are more fragile than others and there may be slight losses to silk fibers, etc. Also, some of the mohair is dyed and some is natural so there are variations within the color of the wig due to either the dye process or naturally occurring coloration. The last picture shows some of the dolls that were made, but this listing is only for the one doll. Signed, dated and numbered by the maker – this is Lady #18. These would be for adult collectors and are not meant for children or as play dolls.
