This doll is unusual in that she is quite large and heavy. Indeed, she weighs approximately 4 lbs. With a shoulder span of approximately 10" (including her dress and capelet), and measuring approximately 38" from the top of her head to the hem of her dress. I can't tell what the doll is made of -- maybe wood or some sort of composite that appears to have been hand painted. Sorry, I can't describe her better -- dolls aren't my specialty -- but hopefully the pictures will help you out. As pretty and unusual as the doll is, I think that the star of this show is her dress.

It is comprised of 3 layers, the top layer of which has been hand embellished with ribbon embroidery, including tiny rosettes and beads. It's hard to describe, but lovely to look at: Whoever made it was clearly very skilled, and customized the dress for the doll, going so far as to sew it onto her. As a result, I have not endeavored to remove it to launder it, and, unfortunately, the dress does need laundering. It appears to have some water stains as well as some purplish transfer discoloration on the back, as pictured.

I imagine that this doll and her dress will appeal to various collectors, and if she does, don't forget I have another doll similar to her for sale, so please do check out my other auctions.
