Ruby is a 21" Higgs style that is carved as the Queen Annes were in about 1680. She is full jointed and hand carved from basswood. Her eyes are painted and have the signature 2 dots that William Higgs always did on his dolls.
Her long over dress is very early silk that is worn and has mends from many years ago, just adding to her old look. Her underskirt is silk with silk looped fringe. Her shoes are handmade of some wonderful silk brocade that I had and was saving just for her.
This lady's head is quite large, just to get an idea of her size, Ruby's head is about the size of a small grapefruit! She is a big doll! This is the largest Higgs I have carved so far.
