A most beautiful and serene William and Mary Lady

Our newest William and Mary period English wooden is dressed in a lovely antique wool paisley. We are so pleased with this one in so many ways, including her very beautiful and expressive face and serene expression. Understated elegance for sure.
She is on her way in a few days to her new home in Australia.

300+ years old? or a 30 day old (Old Pretender)?

On occasion I still have to set down and make a doll just for me and it has to be a challenge. This particular challenge was to create a W&M period doll that has the most authentic 300+ year old patina but also to carry and create that same 300+ year old patina right into her dress as well. I wanted this doll to look like her dress has been on her for 300+ years and I am very pleased with the results. I think everyone will agree, its very hard if not impossible to tell this doll and dress are only a month old.

Hope everyone enjoys the photos.
