13 1/2" Maribel Higgs, Hand Carved Wooden Doll in 1680's Style.............SOLD

Meet Maribel Higgs!
She is 13 1/2" tall and full jointed. (email me if you would like to see photos of her body wonderful body)
Maribel is dressed from head to toe in amazing fabrics from the early 1700's.  He cap and stomacher are made from fragments of hand stitched and embroidered linen/silk with some woven metal in it as well............outstanding!
Her gown is beautifully faded Linen that is a greenish teal shade and the patina on it is truly wonderful.  See the tiny antique ruffles!  Love them.  They are only about 3/8" wide and have the tiniest stitches ever!  Maribel fancies herself as a seamstress of the day.  She has a tiny pair of hinged scissors hanging from her antique apron and on her wrist is a replica of a wrist pincushion. 
I am so pleased with Maribel's total look right down to her tiny silk slippers.
If you have questions or would like more photos just email me:

Maribel’s adorable, what a cutie.. she make me smile!! When i saw her headless body i thought OMG and then i remembered you said her head screws on... phew!! Her green linen dress is wonderful, the fabric aged to perfection, just how i like it.  The fabric in the stomacher and her tiny cap is magnificent.. and those tassels.. they are miniscule, how ever did you make them?? The apron and tiny beads, not to mention her silk slippers.. all delightful! Mmmmm she smells so good too lol!!! How tiny is her wrist pincushion..  i love it!!
I’m so happy to add a Higgs doll to my collection.. Maribel’s a little gem, i love her!! You never cease to amaze me, all your dolls are so beautiful. The love for what you do shines through your amazing little creations, each one unique and beautiful!
Thank you so much!! Hugs
