Lady Gwendolyn is 22 inches tall and wears a beautiful sack back dress, of the most lush fabric a gold  ground with wonderful embroidered floral design. The dress is lined with green silk . I trimmed the gown with hand pinked ruffles down the front, it is backed with red silk. Her cuffs are also hand pinked trimmed with a fine red silk thread and over a fine antique embroidered lace edged  with a gold pleated ribbon. Her stomacher is red silk with a shirred rosette in the center the stomacher is trimmed with a braided combination of green silk threads. Her under skirt is a lovely quilted matelasse  in a deep red to make the wonderful dress fabric really stand out. her shoes have heels and are hand sewn tan leather with red silk ribbon trim, because the doll was larger I was able to make real shoes. hand sewn human hair wig and lace bonnet. As are all my dolls made completely by me I turn the torsos and carve the hands and legs.

They have a new addition to the family as well baby adams cradle and all.

frnt1Hello, This doll is very special with Polonaise style gown in a tan and blue striped silk. this was a very difficult dress it has the English back making the back and skirt one piece. The back is then pleated and the skirt gathered into fine pleats at the waste. .the petticoat is a matching solid blue silk. with a gathered ruffle at the hem. She has matching silk shoes with white stockings. And a kirchife around the shoulders coming to a bow at the front. lovely grosgrain trim around the neckline and cuffs. She wears a wonderful Shepherdess hat, leather mitts on her hands and of course as with all my English woodens my signature enameled eyes. This doll has a real authentic look the dress is short enough so the shoes show as they would on a correctly made dress of this style. She was a challenge to make taking the longest of any of my dolls to complete. I hope you enjoy her. Please feel free to email me or call with questions.  SOLD!

Amber 13.75 inches tall

Amber gets her name from her unique amber colored eyes these eyes are transparent and opaque enameled eyes.  She is wearing a lovely dress made from 18th century block printed fabric, accented with red silk ribbon. So many time when I research 18th century prints for images for my black dolls I see them with beaded necklaces  or earrings, so I made her a necklace using my super rare 100+ year old micro beads 100 beads to the inch. I also braided her hair in cornrow hair style. I really like this doll as with all my black dolls so much better in person the dark skin tone does not show all there beauty in photos. she has red leather shoes and a cotton lawn bonnet her apron is also of this same fabric.

for more information call or email me.

French Court Gentelman

This French Court gentleman is dressed in a suit coat with gold trim and hand made buttons very small buttons. His vest is made of very rare 17th century silk embroidered fabric a small piece of this fabric was given to me as a gift and I saved it for this special? fellow. The vest? also has even smaller very small buttons.  His trousers are a turquoise silk? the knee closer also have the small buttons. I made him a plique a jour pin to decorate his stock ( this technique is where a transparent enamel is fused with pure silver creating a small window or enclosed piece of class) the silver is twisted and falls to a tassel. It amuses me that the description of his clothes takes less to to write about than the lady French Court doll but twice as long to construct. I think he has a wonderful authentic look? and like the lady and the originals he is anatomically correct.
