Ruby, 18 inch. Black Wooden Doll in Englishwomen's Costume c. 1760.....SOLD

Ruby is sold already, but I want to share with you some pictures of her, so you can see all the beautiful details of this amazing 18 inch. hand-carved black wooden doll. 

Details of her clothing:
Petticoat, bustle pad, stockings and lace from the Victorian Era. Her striped-silk stockings are to die for! Pleated skirt, a lovely vintage ruby red fabric.
Her open robe made of a beautiful resist dyed printed cotton that dates from around 1880's. 
Brocade shoes, 19th c. textile with silver threads, accented with tiny Victorian shoe buckles.
Her stomacher is made of an exquisite Ottoman embroidery textile, early 19th. century.
