" Lorena" Hand-carved Queen Anne Doll, early 18th c.

Lorena is hand carved from linden wood, the head and torso is
a single piece, she is jointed at the shoulders, elbows,
hips and knees. The hand carving and clothing are exquisite.

Lorena's dress is quite lovely. Rare and beautiful example of 18th century block printed textile. The combination of colors is so stunning!
