I am so pleased to share some pictures of Lady Eleanor with you, she is even better in person. She stands 9 inches tall. I have been reproducing early English wooden dolls and very rare I make smaller size reproductions. This little girl was in my projects board for quite some time, so she is finished now and ready to go to a new home.
Lady Eleanor is fully jointed and seats well. She has antique pupil-less glass eyes and finely painted dotted eyebrows
Her clothing is inspired on a 1760's court mantua, this fashionable style of gown was worn between mid or late 17th century and beginning of the 18th century, its skirts were worn over wide hoops and it was adorned with fashionable accessories. Lady Eleanor's gown is made of an early 19th French brocaded, the skirt and bodice are decorated with a fabulous French torchon silver trim. Her clothes are non-removable. Please scroll down to see more pictures of this doll.
The sleeves have beautiful antique French lace ruffles
Headdress: French lace, metallic trims and silk flowers
Last but not least, her teeny-tiny shoes, 19th c. silk brocaded textile in copper color (Italian in origin), adorned with vintage French ribbon bows in a beige color.
