With her hazlenut-brown
beautiful eyelashes Amber looks as if she comes straight from
Shakespeare's Midsummernight's Dream.
Her clothes also give
you the feeling
she comes from a time far away.
Doll artist Gillie Charlson used
beautiful fabrics to give Amber this look.
Her head and arms below the elbow and her
legs below the knees have been sculpted beautifully of very fine
porcelain. She has brown glass eyes and
beautifully painted facial details. Her soft cotton body has no joints but is flexible as it is wired.
Amber wears knee long
trousers and a
petticoat of cream coloured cotton edged with lace. She is wearing a pleated
dress with a cream lace topdress.
Her mohair wig is
crowned by flowers
held together by a mauve coloured silk ribbon. A similar ribbon
decorates her dress.
England in the series
of 4 dolls representing England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland in a
limited edition of 50 pieces. She comes with her certificate and is
marked 'Gillie' on her shoulderplate.
Gillie Charlson made 53,5 cm,
21”, Amber in 1994.
Amber is in mint condition. She has never been on display.
