This is a porcelain doll commissioned by the Ashton-Drake Galleries and created by Yolanda Bello for the Edwin M. Knowles China Company.

"Amanda" is ready to join her cousin "Matthew" at the family picnic celebrating our country's birthday. She is all dressed in patriotic red, white and blue. Like a real baby girl, this delightful doll has a family tree that boasts some proud ancestors. Ms Bello's "Amanda" continues a distinguished line of character baby dolls that were popular at the turn of the 20th century. Dolls designed by painters and sculptors of national reputation were a highlight of the 1909 Berlin exhibition.

"Amanda", produced in 1988, is the fifth issue of designer Yolando Bello's "Picture Perfect Babies". "Amanda" with her dimpled smile and merry eyes tell us that she wants to show all the relatives what a good speller she is. And, or course, everyone will be impressed and follow up with lots of hugs and kisses. She especially hopes for a little piece of 4th of July birthday cake. Ms Bello demonstrates her consummate artistic skills in this doll. Amanda's lifelike and expressive face, detailed costume, and realistic pose clearly establish her as much more than a fine porcelain collector's doll--she is a personality that warms the heart of every adult who has been touched by such a child. Her head, arms, and legs are hand finished to a velvet smooth bisque finish and hand painted by talented artisans.

"Amanda" is in mint condition in her original box with all the original packaging and the shipping box. She has only been removed to take her picture. She is really cute in her sailor outfit, ready for her mommy's birthday. Her seated height is around 10". Shipping in the US only. Shipping cost includes insurance. I wouldn't ship her without.
