I ordered a doll for Mum's roombox from master dollmaker Teresa Thompson aka Costume Cavalcade in the UK, and it arrived today! I'm so excited!
The doll's model name is Dulcie #2, and she's one of Teresa's gorgeous Edwardian children. The details on this tiny work of art have to be seen to be appreciated -- she's perfect in every respect. I'm still undecided on whether I want dolls in my houses or not (I think I may prefer just cats :), but if I was going to have dolls, I'd start with Teresa's work. She's a real expert on costume, and that's very important to me :)
This is a pair of William and Mary/Queen Anne dolls circa 1690 -- doesn't he look like the somewhat more serious, less libertine younger brother of Sue's wonderful dummy board, Gentleman with a Cane, aka, Lord Fancypants?
And this is Teresa's early Georgian family, circa 1720. Aren't they GORGEOUS?
Okay, I think I may have to have dolls after all!
Thank you, thank you, Teresa, for your wonderful work :)
