"Dancing in the Meadow"
'Dancing in the meadow, my heart feels young and free, The sky above is
clear and blue, the sun shines down on me©'
A stunning hand-crafted one-twelfth scale miniature ballerina doll, cast in best quality bisque porcelain and meticulously dressed to perfection by
Louise Goldsborough of Angelique Miniatures.
This pretty blonde ballerina wears a colourful Alpine-style costume of blue, red and ivory pure silk, embellished with fancy braid, delicate cotton lace and tiny red bows.
Her ivory, lace-trimmed blouse has a low gathered neckline and three quarter length large puffed sleeves trimmed with lace and red silk bows. A fitted red silk bodice, laced at the front with golden cord completes the top of this lovely costume.
The ballerina’s bright blue silk skirt is embellished with layers of fancy braid and trimmed at the hem with wide ivory cotton lace. A delicate lace apron is worn over this prettiest of skirts and underneath the skirt are layers of frothy tulle worn over delicate silk lace-trimmed pantaloons. Her stockings are of finest cotton net with tiny seams and on the leather sole of each hand-crafted red silk pointe shoe is the word ‘Angelique’ embossed in minute golden lettering. Around her neck is a choker with a red silk bow and the ballerina’s golden blonde hair is further decorated with more silken ribbons.
This miniature porcelain ballerina doll is wired to make her poseable and is supplied on a painted removable golden stand. Each ‘Dancing in the Meadow’ doll comes with her own numbered Limited Edition card.
