20" tall doll in crinoline dress was inspired by the painting " The Empress Eugenie and her Ladies-in-waiting" by Winterhalter c1843.
The flounced crinoline was popular between 1830 and 1870 but stayed fashionable in the deep south of the U.S.A. for longer.
|This outfit has many layers. A long pair of drawers with lace trim and a laced corset make up the bottom layer. Over this she wears a chemisette and an under petticoat. A crinoline keeps all the layers of the skirt spread out wide with a top petticoat with deep lace trim along the hem. The dress is trimmed with lace, ribbon and ribbon flowers in shades of pale pink and pale blue and turquoise.
|To finish off the outfit she wears an organza turquoise shawl round her shoulders. She has a faux pearl bracelet and necklace and carries a bouquet of artificial flowers in her hand. She also wears matching hand made shoes.|
Cost of doll, complete with stand and special delivery postage inside the UK, is £95
