Broken Hearted Altered Doll
My showing of altered baby dolls has come down and I will start listing them in my etsy shop next month.
I am giving my readers first dibs though.
These dolls are all vintage composition dolls that were loved by a little girl at one time.
I have altered them and brought new life to them as art.
This particular one is all hand stitched with findings of vintage laces,buttons and material.
The image is a transfer of a vintage cabinet card.
The story goes, that this young lady was forced to give up her beloved doll because of her becoming too mature to play with a doll or have things of little girls style.
She sewed her heart on it with her self portrait for her doll to always know she loved her.
Measures 8 by 12 inches
hangs from hook on back side of doll
This piece is for sale $55.00 plus $13 shipping. Prices are for local US if you are outside of the US please let me know so I can get shipping prices for you.
