Doll : Mary And Her Saltbox House At WSOAPP Shop

The doll and the saltbox house are a union of sewing machine and hand stitching
and both come signed and dated by me .
The doll measures about 17 1/2 inches tall .
The small saltbox house measures about 4 1/2 inches tall .
The two pieces were created using raw silk fabric and each were painted, sanded,
stained and painted once more to give the pieces a wonderful vintage look and feel .
The doll's body was hand-painted wearing a Shirtwaists and bloomers .
I have added extra stitches on her body to give her a vintage look .
The dolls' dress is from a vintage girls dress pattern which I have modified to a doll size
and it is removable .
The doll's dress neckline and hem were embellished with cotton lace .
The dress is of cotton fabric with very old buttons .
The hair is of wool, that I have dyed and hand stitched in place .
The chair is not included .

She is now listed in my WSOAPP SHOP

Thank you for looking .
