29" Constance, a HUGE hand carved Queen Anne Doll....................SOLD

For a number of years I have wanted to make a really huge Queen Anne doll.  I am so proud of this doll in every way.  For months I have been dreaming about making a big wooden doll.  Well, this is about as big as they get!  Constance is 29" tall with her hat on.  She is really a huge doll with such presence. Her head is about the size of a small grapefruit.  That should give you the idea of her size (without me having to but the Coke can in the photo! LOL)
She is dressed in Silk and her petticoat, which is very full and simple but wonderful, is made from some early whites from the UK.  Of course she has silk shoes and stockings, which I love to make.  She has lead strings as well that match her silk gown. Her body is fully jointed and she sits well if you have a large chair!
Her eyes are antique black glass pupiless eyes and her patina is so much more wonderful than you are seeing in these photos. 
What a job she has been.  When I set out to make a "big" doll I had no idea the work it would be.  This doll has taken me weeks to make and finish off but she is now complete, including her flat hat made of antique silk and she is looking for a good home for the Holidays.  I hope you enjoy seeing her.  If you have any questions just let me know:

Constance is SOLD.
