Little Petunia, Wooden Queen Anne Doll hand carved....AVAILABLE



I am thrilled to introduce Little Petunia, she is my representation of a young girl that was brought as a servant to the British Empire from Africa in the 18th century. 
There are many paintings of the 17th and 18th centuries that depict nobles in the company of their favorite servant. During that period of time, it became fashionable for the wealthy families to have black servants dressed in elaborate clothing not only for special occasions, but for the portraits.
I dressed Little Petunia in clothing that is historically inspired. All her clothing is removable. You will be amazed by the quality of this little doll.  She stands 8 inches tall.

If interested in purchasing this doll, please send

Her beautiful corset is made of a Civil War Era wool paisley textile


Little Petunia is wearing a lovely Victorian Era glass 
beaded necklace.
Her petticoat, blouse and bonnet are made of antique 
cotton batiste


Quilted bustle pad: hand-sewn in the 19th century style, would help her skirt hang and drape gracefully.

Early calico in beautiful turkey red color with tiny dots and vines

I made her teeny-tiny shoes with the same textile of the corset.
