11" Reproduction Queen Anne Wooden Doll




She 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.

             
    Here a close-up of her cotton petticoat, Victorian Era English trim with a rare and lovely spider web pattern.


 Her dress is made from a rare and beautiful example
of 18th century textile. 
Block-printed cotton chintz with a gorgeous tiny floral pattern.

                                                     

     

                 This late18th century textile that I used for making her
 cloth pocket is linen embroidered with silk
threads ( Hertfordshire, UK)
