17 1/2" Camilla, hand carved Queen Anne style doll...............SOLD

I am again posting a lot of photos of this doll so you can see her through her journey of being made, at least being dressed!
This is 17 1/2" Camilla.  She has such a beautiful face and great patina and I hope you can see this well in the photos I am posting. She is fully jointed at the hips and knees and is jointed at the elbows as well with Linen and she has wooden upper arms. Dear Camilla is dressed in the most amazing 1700's hand embroidered silk jacket that I made for her.  I hope you can see all the tiny stitching.  He lace up corset is form fitting and exquisite for her outfit.  The Silk that I used for her skirt is nothing short of wonderful.  She also has a very full, hand stitched petticoat that ties at the waist.  Her cap and slevelettes and lace at her neck are made from very early silk lace that dates about 1750.  Her cap is stitched on but all other clothing is removable.  I have put a couple stitches in the back of her skirt but they can be removed if you wish to take her clothing off or perhaps make her more clothing.  Camilla's long apron has the most wonderful hand stitched, white on white crewel work on the bottom of it and every stitch on the apron and ties are all hand done.  Her pocket of course matches her jacket and is the last morsel of that amazing hand embroidered silk that I had left.  If you would like more photos of Camilla or if you have any questions, just email me:  toysintheattic@sympatico.ca
Enjoy!
Camilla is SOLD.

Your work is absolutely exquisite! I have never seen such perfect sewing and handwork. Out of curiosity, do you also carve the dolls yourself?

Hiya Kathy just wanted to ask if you hand embroidered her beautiful jacket yourself? :) Joy x

Thank you for your interest in my dolls. The embroidery is original to the piece of antique fabric.
Thanks,
