Wow, I couldn't pass this one up. Here is a matronly lady cloth doll holding a bowl of tea up under her chin, looking as if she is about to render an unfavorable verdict on something or other. Her poor hair has gotten a bit baldy over the years (see last photo), so I decided to top her off with a vintage doily. Imagine my surprise when she suddenly turned into the well-known English Monarch, who is apparently not amused. My research tells me this was made in Russia in the 1950s, nonetheless she has a distinctly British look. She has been used for her intended purpose, you can see from the photo that steam from a teapost has marked her undergarment. One hole each in her shawl and in her dress, I am going to make a note to myself to include a small selection of vintage fabric so you can patch her if you wish. Doily is not attached to her head, so you can certainly provide her with the headgear of your choice if you don't like it. She will accomodate a VERY large teapot, she is 17 inches long from her hem to the top of her head.

Mad about doilies? I have more in my shop Edwardian Aura:
