"MISS ELIZABETH WINTHROP"


Finally, a bit of cool weather has descended upon us here in the South!  It was actually chilly this morning at about 49 degrees, but will get up into the high 70's this afternoon. Perfect!! 

Just wanted to show you my latest doll, already safely in her new home in California.  She is named "Miss Elizabeth Winthrop" and I envision her as being a New England "spinster" from the 1860's. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
She is about 20" tall.  Her body is cloth and her head is sculpted of paper clay, then oil painted.   Her dress is made of silk taffeta and silk dupionni, her bonnet has antique lace and her boots are hand-made of fine brown leather.
