Pretty in Pink ~ Victorian Doll

~~~~
This doll is a reproduction but you really have to look closely to be able to tell. She is signed and dated 1980 on her shoulder plate.



I just love her feathered hat.



Her Clothing is silk with lace trim. It is all fully lined.
Expertly made with French seams, piping and bows.


She has a bustle, half slip, pantaloons and camisole.



She is just over 14 inches tall.


I love her little black boots.


I will likely post her on eBay in a day or so . . . Etsy does not have a doll category or an antique category (only vintage) . . . so I think a Victorian Style Doll will be easier to find on eBay.

Hi Karen...

She's a beauty! Love the hat too! Her clothes are lovely and those tiny little shoes...Someone will add her to their collection.

Now that little fairy sounds enchanting...I just might have to make another one! I'll post a finished one in August...the first free bit of time I will have!

Hugs, Nancy
