Grace 16" Queen Anne Wooden Doll........AVAILABLE



 
I have just finished this beautiful young Lady and she is AVAILABLE.
Any questions or comments about this doll, please email me at soniakrausedolls@gmail.com

I do offer up to a 2 month layaway plan for all of my dolls


 All of her clothing are made from antique fabrics. These are all removable.
She comes with her cotton petticoat, chemise, quilted bustle pad, corset, beautiful embroidered net-lace apron and bonnet, cloth pocket, skirt, jacket, stockings, garters, brocade shoes........and earrings! Please scroll down to see more photos of Grace.


 Beautiful 19th century French wood block printed fabric.
 The colors and floral pattern are beautiful.

 
 
Hand-carved from linden wood, Grace has a one-piece carved wooden head and torso, fully jointed. She has finely carved hands.

 
Grace is wearing a corset made from a fragment of an early 19th century English brocade textile. It is a wonderful and rare textile.
 


 Her caraco/jacket: silk, ca. 1840, three-quarter sleeves, fitted to the waist.
 



 
The textile  I used for making her cloth pocket is
 wood block printed quilted cotton, 1850 c.
 

 
She has pierced ears and she is wearing tiny lovely earrings.
You would enjoy making a new pair of  earrings for her!
This doll has a wonderful black painting with a soft, matte finish. She is much more nicer in person. ( A few weeks ago I had  a hard time taking photos of a previous Black Queen Anne Doll that is already sold, but THANKS to a lovely lady that told me about the tips and tricks of photographing a black doll,
it  helped me to capture nicely the image of her face,  without the brightness caused by my camera *)


 
 
 
 
 
Her shoes are made of a 19th c French brocade fabric.
They have leather soles and a cotton lining.
She is wearing Edwardian wool stockings and silk garters.
