"Prudence" 16" Wooden Queen Anne Doll Reproduction.....Available

 
Prudence, a sweet young lady, is my representation of an 18th c. English Wooden Doll.  All of her clothing are made from antique
fabrics, all removable.
If you are interested to buy this doll, please email me
 


 
Rare and beautiful example of 18th century French textile. It dates from around 1760. The gorgeous floral pattern was block printed onto the fabric. The colors are stunning!   


 
 
 Eighteen century style corset/stay with center front lacing. It is made out of a vintage green brocade textile in a lovely green color. Her  antique quilted hip pads will help Prudence's lovely skirt hang and drape gracefully.



 
Prudence is carrying  some of her small possessions in her pocket,  made out of an 19th century cloth.
 
 
 
Her caraco/jacket: silk, ca. 1840, three-quarter sleeves, fitted to the waist,
 it opens in front. The  colors of her clothes are splendid!
One of the things that I enjoy the most in my doll-making is dressing them up!
 I love to make contrast between the solid colors and the printed cloths....like this 18th c. block printed quilted skirt that goes in perfect harmony with her lovely jacket.
 
 
And here they are!...her teeny tiny shoes made out of the beautiful green
brocade fabric that I used to make her corset. Leather soles, cotton lining
 and decorative antique silver buttons.
She is wearing antique silky stockings and garters, in a lovely pumpkin color!
