I'm a sucker for little things in boxes. The smaller the better.
All of my little toy dolls come in special boxes, many of my toys come in boxes, I've just started a range of Mignonette dolls in boxes...... I'm a little bit obsessed with boxes.
So for Day 3 of my Art Challenge, I present a selection of little toy dolls in boxes. Or, to be more precise, tiny wooden trunks.

Which opens to reveal.......
Inside, the trunks are decorated in tiny print papers. The little toy doll is on a removable stand and is dressed in shades of silk to complement the trunk. She carries a tiny leather handbag.
On the other side of the box is a silk dress on a hanger. Under the shelf is a matching silk and lace bonnet and a tiny posy of silk roses.

These little vintage doll trunks are very popular, and often sell out as soon as they're listed on the website, so I'm always happy to make them to order, in specific colours to match or contrast with customers' doll's house decor.
