The Masked Ball - ON MUSEUM LOAN

The Masked Ball - ON MUSEUM LOAN

Product not available for online purchase

This one-of-a-kind, wonderfully designed art doll is the belle of the ball, with her mint-green and pearly white embroidered, pure silk dress. The doll's attire was entirely hand sewn (no machine sewing), as was her fabric body. The figurine is also adorned with pure white lace ribbons at the neck and in her coiffe, which sits upon her blond hair, in late 18th century style. 

The head of the art doll was sculpted in clay, which was then delicately painted with acrylics. She also holds a lace mask in her right hand.

Please note that this art doll is on museum loan, but that I do accept commission work.
