Extra Fine Painting

The original doll of this model was made as a “walking doll” & I have been able to purchase the correct Seeley body for her sold by New York Doll Products. The body is French composition with a satin eyelet “panty” that covers the walking mechanism.

Her gorgeous costume was made by Mary Lambeth and features her signature handmade ribbon flowers. The fabrics are pure silk and laces are all genuine Antique. The two piece dress of skirt and over-blouse features Antique hand crochet buttons and delicate lace edging. The top part of the costume is made from pure silk taffeta in a subtle muted chartreuse color. The front piece of lace on the skirt is handmade pure silk Antique lace, extremely hard to find and valuable.

The skirt of silk satin stripe has an over skirt of fine silk georgette and lace with a lovely lace bustle at the back. The bonnet is in matching silk satin stripe with beautiful lace and flowers. All garments are lined in cotton.

Undergarments in 100% cotton fabric are bloomers and half slip. Hand knitted socks and Genuine Leather French style shoes complete this lovely costume.

She is 18.5 inches tall (47 cm) and 22 inches with the bonnet on (56 cm)
