This morning I've been updating the website with several new toy dolls, including a completely new vintage-style glazed china doll.......
These are quite a departure from the Jumeau-style dolls but great fun to do..... hopefully I will have a few more ready to take to Thame later this month.
My dyeing batch last week has yielded some mouth-watering colours of silk ribbon, from Crushed Strawberry to Apricot & Cream, which I've used for these Shabby Chic Toy Dolls
Bear in mind that these porcelain dolls are less than 2 inches tall, have jointed arms and legs and full costumes, including silk underwear, silk shoes with leather soles, handmade wigs, silk dresses and bonnets. They are completely hand-crafted from start to finish.
I'm also really pleased with the muted, vintage colours from my dyeing experiment, used for the Jumeau-style Toy Dolls above.
I've restocked our Jumeau-style doll kits with many of the new colours, which are listed HERE.
This week I shall be concentrating on some fanciful new Victorian menagerie pullalong toys which will be unveiled in due course.....
