This listing is for an original porcelain Angeline doll by world-renowned Australian doll and teddy bear artist, Karen Blandford-Alderson, circa mid-1990s. Blandfords hand-sculpted and painted creations are truly stunning with exquisite costuming composed of antique laces and leather shoes. Angeline is a limited-edition doll, numbered 2 of 10 pieces.
This incredibly rare porcelain doll features a blonde mohair fleece wig and fine green glass paperweight eyes. She is composed of the finest porcelain with a cloth-stuffed and loc-line armature body. With intricate craftsmanship, Blandfords dolls may be posed in numerous positions. She displays well in a seated position to show off her slender legs.
Angeline possesses exquisite hand-painted features. Her face, collarbone, and fingers are beautifully detailed.
Angeline dons a dark evergreen velvet dress with buttons and white lace embellishments. She also wears silk slip, bloomers, and tights. Angelines handmade Victorian-style heeled shoes feature silk ribbons and Swarovski crystals. She is in excellent, preowned condition. Angeline has never been redressed or restyled in any way.
The only flaw that I noted was three very small holes in her light green tights (right leg). Angeline also does not come with her certificate of authenticity, but is incised on the back of her neck with the artists signature and edition number, along with her date of creation (please see photographs). Do not pass up the opportunity to own one of Blandfords unique and stunning dolls.
