" Harriet " in the Style of Queen Anne Doll.....SOLD



I carved this doll inspired by a beautiful 19th c.
African-American woman. During the process of carving Harriet, it came to my mind to dress her in clothes that highlight the beauty of her color. So I decided, as with my previous negro dolls, dress her with the finest textiles. I took many pictures of Harriet, I hope you enjoy viewing them!

If you have questions or comments,
 please email me at soniakrausedolls@gmail.com


SHE IS SOLD



 



Harriet has pierced ears with lovely1920's  red cognac
& gold bead earrings.


 SOLD


  Here is my doll's tiny corset, a perfect miniature replica of
what a 19th c. woman would have worn at the time.
Material: Silk Embroidered Brocade Lampas,
FRANCE 1850- 1880








           Her skirt is made of a rare, beautiful , early example of 
         French Block Printed and Resist Dyed Textile, dating from around
1820- 1850. French examples of these early textiles were made using a technique called "picotage", a method of printing dots using carved wooden printing plates studded with metal nails or tacks.
 



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



SOLD 





All of her clothing is made of antique fabrics.
