Priscilla is my representation of a young black woman, that was brought from the West Indies to the British
Empire in the 18th century.
At her arrival, she became a lady's maid.
I dressed Priscilla in clothing that is historically inspired.
She stands just over 19 inches tall.

She is fully jointed. The hand-carving and clothing are exquisite.
All of her clothing is made from antique fabrics.
Her clothing is a faithful period reproduction.
Priscilla was in my project board for many weeks ago, I had
so much fun with her new mom talking over the phone and exchanging ideas and emails in recreating her
beautiful clothing. The red fabric is a beautiful
example of early 19th-century textile, block printed, painted mordant-and-resist-dyed. The madder brown cotton
calico is probably American in origin though may have been printed in England.
Her black silk shoes are embellished with glass beads and beautiful torchon metal trim, both materials dating
from the Victorian Era.
