Witch Esmeralda

Witch Esmeralda is a little tired she has the baggy eyes to prove it . It seems all her witchy antics have caught up with her for sure this year . But not to worry her favorite friend blackly the crow is always there to give her support. She is looking in her crystal ball to see who will bring her home this Halloween……will it be you!

She comes with a William and Mary style chair and a William and Mary pub table. She has a crysyal ball  and of course her friend Blackly who has a little perch. She is made just like all of my English wooden style dolls. A hand turned torso and legs that bend at the hips and knees. She has my exclusive enameled on copper eyes that are the same as the original dolls had. Her dress is fabulous with a really fun holy acid green and black look perfect for a witchy witch. She has matching little shoes as well. Esmeralda has a real sense of style wearing her hat to the side she has a great attitude.


Lady Irene

This is another one of my William Higgs style dolls she is 9 inches tall so a very small Higgs doll. I am especially pleased with her she has a very authentic look ,very old looking. This is due to the 18th century Fabric I used as well as very old trims. Her dress is made from 18th century striped silk. This silk has some worn spots which you will be able to see in the photos I love this about it .This is exactly what you would expect to see if you had an original doll the old fabric would be showing sings of age and wear.I line the skirt with a tuquoise silk for stability.   The trim as well is very old. the sleeves on the dress have the wide opening at the end with some very fine batiste fabric I styled the sleeve from examples I found in old painting of Lady’s in the late 1600’s around 16 77 0r so. Her hair as well was styled after the Lady’s in these paintings, with the small side curls around the face. I love the red color of her hair as the Ladies of the period seem to favor this color. She is a very sturdy doll able to stand alone but I have made her a stand for added support and to be safe.

This Is Lady Mary she is 17 inches tall. Lady Mary is wearing a lovely open robe dress made from antique silk brocade with gold thread. her under dress is an antique skirt of a lovely silk taffeta, in a wonderful purple color . The trim is Antique trim from a castle in Scotland a shear fabric embroidered with the smallest floral design and edged with a metallic chain very delicate, and the inspiration for her name Lady Mary. She wears matching shoes. I made her a lovely necklace made of  gold colored beads and a silver bow leafed in gold, holding a  pink transparent enamel broach.

Her construction is as the originals. A turned torso and hand carved hand and limbs she bends at the hip and knees, the true authentic English wooden body. She  has my signature enameled eyes giving her the unique presence that is only achieved with enameled eyes .
