I've been working on some new toy dolls recently, which are now listed on the website.
Following a recent experiment with dyeing silk ribbons, I miraculously discovered some sumptuously gorgeous new colours.....a striking period-style Old Gold, a deliciously succulent Deep Plum, and my own personal favourite, an elegant Dusky Blue, all of which have now been transformed into Jumeau-style costumes for my tiny jointed porcelain toy dolls.
Also, finally back in stock are some new shabby chic toy dolls, dressed in a variety of pastel shades.....
These little toy dolls are proving very popular, as they are suitable for a wide range of miniature period nurseries, from Regency right through to the present day.
As with all of my creations, attention to detail extends to even the bits you can't see! These little dolls, measuring a smidgen under 1 1/2" have jointed, moveable arms and legs. She has silk underwear, including a silk camisole top under her high waisted silk dress, trimmed round the hem with vintage French lace, as are the cuffs of her sleeves. The bodice is of fine cotton lace lined with silk.
Finishing touches include tiny silk shoes with soft leather soles, an upswept wig with a cascade of ringlet curls down her back, topped off with a lined silk bonnet, elaborately decorated with fine picot braids and dainty silk buds and bows trimming.
They come in a bespoke black box with illustrated lid...
...complete with a numbered, signed certificate of authenticity, each one illustrated with a photograph of the specific doll.
How special is that....?
