The Redhead

Hullo! I haven’t drifted off the face of the blogosphere… I have however, been taking a bit of a break from buying new dolls (just for a short while!).
But since its Mothers Day and all, its a perfect opportunity to blog about a doll that my mother picked up for me a few weeks ago. She found this lovely irish lass and couldn’t help getting her for me (probably because, minus the eye colour, this redheaded lady looks an awful lot like me)

She marks the second porcelain doll in my collection, and is traditionally attired and painted. Shes quite pretty, with big curly red hair and a pleasant little smile. I cant tell if the paint on her face was hand done?
She does have lovely clear eyes and long lashes, and in her long forest green dress makes quite the little irish lady. Her hair is quite wild, and I will probably need to find some way to care for it to help tame down some of the frizz and matts that’s its got into over the years.

The hat is removable, and on the back of her neck is the only marking I can find on the doll, the numbers 9414. I am trying to discover who made her, so if you have any clues let me know! All in all shes a very sweet little dear and feels right at home next to the other porcelain doll in my collection which was left to me by my grandmother.

Thank you mom for the joyful addition to my collection, and happy Mothers Day 🙂
