French Court Doll


This doll is my latest French Court style doll she is 14.5 inches tall and is dress in 1770 embroidered silk gown? I am very pleased with her the gown is made from a 18th century vest, I only had the front at 220 years old a little melting is to be expected. However the embroidery was so exquisite and so fantastically done that I lined and stabilized the fabric as best? I could , and was able to rework the embroidery portions into the gown. the small flowers that are embroidered into the main ground of the silk are in perfect scale to the doll as is all the elaborate work in the front panels. Even though the dress is delicate? I love the look I have achieved using this fabric.Under the gown is a antique silk with lace work and pleating very delicate? and wonderful blending of the colors . She has a lovely piece of french silk trim for her head piece. Her body is made as the original dolls, her legs with carved shoes are painted she has pink stockings and green shoes.  for more information please call me or email me, I will be happy to hear from you.
