"Silvana", Hand-carved Black Wooden Doll...SOLD


  Silvana is my representation of a young black woman that was brought as a servant  to the British Empire 
from West Africa, in the 17th-century. It became
 fashionable for the wealthy families to have black 
servants dressed in elaborate clothing.
I dressed my doll in clothing that is historically inspired.
You will be amazed by this doll ! She is 12".

Any questions or comments,
 please email me at soniakrausedolls@gmail.com
