She is from about 1928 made of composition and 14" tall. I rescued her from an antique store. She needed a little TLC. Her eye was totally gone, her arms flaking horribly and she was in need of some clothes. I love the fabrics from this era. Finding old prints is getting harder and harder but luckily some wonderful new prints are available based on these old designs. I try to add to my collection whenever I find a new print I like. There are some really sweet ones available.
Once I settled on the dress fabric I made her little outfit from a vintage Patsy Pattern and added the bow to her hair. She really didn't need too much work but just enough to make her sweet and attractive to look at.
The shoes are temporary as they are not from her era but I am still looking for a vintage pair to replace them with. I just put these on her until I find some. These dolls are so appealing with their little bobbed hair styles I just love them!
P.S. I am working on a new OOAK called Little Bo Peep. She will be available soon...so please check back!
Hello, my name is Marcie Hart. I am an artist-sculptor working in polymer clay and mixed media. I love fantasy, fairytales and mythical themes and usually incorporate these themes into my work. I have always been involved in the arts in one way or another since as far back as I can remember. My work has been featured in Dolls Magazine, Doll Collector Magazine, Susanna Oroyan's book Designing the Doll and I was also chosen to represent Idaho in the 1998 Blue Room Christmas Tree decoration for President Bill & Hillary Clinton. My work resides in collectors homes worldwide. I hope you will enjoy visiting and I hope to give a little insight on my work and myself along the way. Thank you for stopping by!
