A Queen Anne Style Doll...

Please meet Ladye Elizabeth...

She is my version of a Queen Anne style doll.


I have worked over a 100 hours on her and did my very best to make her look like she was made hundreds of years ago.

She can be gently posed at the shoulder, elbow, hips and knee joints.  As you can see in this next photo, I have posed her arms.


She has black antique glass eyes and measures 13.5 inches tall.  She will also come with a doll stand that I made for her, so she may be displayed.



Her dress, undergarments and bonnet are entirely made from humble cottons and antique lace, which I hand dyed and aged.  For her undergarments, I made Victorian pantaloons, Primitive bustle pads (which I embroidered with her initials L and E) and a Petticoat.  I also made her Victorian lace up boots, that I've antiqued and aged along with a little necklace made of tiny glass beads.


Ladye Elizabeth is very soft spoken and enjoys reading poetry.



Thank you so much for visiting and viewing Ladye Elizabeth!

She is now available for adoption in my Etsy Shop.
