"Lady Adela" Queen Anne Wooden Doll....SOLD


♥ Dear Jeannelle,
Thank you so much for adopting Lovely Lady Adela and for sharing with us your thoughts about your doll 

" She and I have been getting acquainted and I want you to know that I am so very pleased with her.  I like everything about her lovely clothing and hope to do a little sewing and accessorizing for her in the future.  Her size allows her to have a subtle majesty and her fair hair and delicate eye painting give her countenance a gentle, pleasing quality.  I can see and feel the artistry and time you put into your dolls through having her in my home and I am grateful. I look forward to seeing new dolls and hope I can purchase again. Thank you for such a wonderful experience in communicating with you and buying one of your dolls."
Best wishes,



Exquisite hand-carving and period clothing.
Lady Adela is  23.5 inches tall.

Her dress is made of a beautiful, early example of 
         French Block Printed and Resist Dyed Textile, dating from the 1800's. 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.

Cloth Pocket: 18th century textile, linen embroidered with silk threads ( Hertfordshire, UK)


Here is a close-up of her corset, entirely lined.
Gorgeous 19th c. English silk with lovely embroidery work.

My doll has beautiful inset black pupiless glass eyes,
ca. 1880's

 Lovely Lady Adela is wearing a double bustle pad sewn in the 19th c. style, it will help her skirt hang and drape nicely. 

 Petticoat:  Victorian Era English trim with a lovely spider web pattern.
