Paulette

One of three new prairie daughters arriving on the homestead is Paulette, a 15" cloth doll.  She has a cloth body, with sculpted clay hair and a flat face with oil painted features.  Completed in several stages, the face, although flat, achieves the magic of dimension in the layering of the paint.  Paulette has a wonderful costume, including her unders of pantaloons and a slip, as well as stripped "stockings" and painted black slippers.  She wears a very old antique cloth dress with printed roses on a field of light tan.  This dress was made in the long-ago entirely by hand.  She also wears a vintage sunbonnet which was adapted for her as well as a lovely pinafore, which I made and embroidered for her as a copy of an antique example.  I hope that you see that achieves a little-girl innocence of expression.  

Her purchase price is $675 and $20 shipping in the U.S.  She is also available for a long term layaway.  About half of my dolls sales involve layaway.  I am very easy to work with, so please do not hesitate to ask.  I can be contacted via email for questions or reservations.
