" Laura" Hand-carved Queen Anne Doll, 19th c.


Laura is 18 1/2 inches tall, beautifully hand carved.
               
                                      




She  wears a full-length 2 pc dress over 
off-white blouse and petticoat. 
Her clothing is exquisite!





Late 19th c. French textile with lovely pattern. Colors are time softened beautifully.


Laura is fully jointed, she has graceful features and
wonderful long torso.



Her bum roll pad sewn in the 18th c. style will help her skirt hang and drape nicely.



The colors of her cloth pocket make a wonderful
contrast with her clothing, dating from around 1880, woven floral on ecru taffeta silk ground with metal thread work.
