This lovely hand-crafted one twelfth scale miniature doll stands approx, five and a half inches tall.
She wears a late Victorian bustle gown of ivory silk jacquard, decorated with lashings of fine cotton lace and a delicate cream and gold fancy braid. The front of the gown skirt has a ruched apron-swag over a straight front panel and two long silk brocade ‘tails’. The back of the gown is puffed and trained with two angled and pointed ‘tails’ and a large bow. The off-the-shoulder bodice is fitted with a brocade centre panel under a deep frill of lace. Around her neck, the bride wears a golden heart pendant embellished with pearls and crystals. Her lace-trimmed puffed sleeves end at the elbows and she wears a pair of delicate lace mittens.
The dress is trimmed with peach silk roses, greenery and tiny ivory coloured buds that are echoed at the top of the fine full-length silk tulle veil that floats over the bride’s chestnut hair.
Underneath the bride wears white, lace-trimmed cotton pantaloons and a fancy trained petticoat. On her feet are painted golden shoes decorated with pale blue silk rosettes.
Below are some other views of the dress.
