VICTORIA, THE ENDURING LEGACY OF LADY ALEXANDER
(click on picture to enlarge)
The very well respected Denise Buese has debuted VICTORIA: The Enduring Legacy of Lady Alexander. The stunning Victoria is a rarity in the world of antique dolls. Her extensive ensembles, complete with accessories, are the finest examples of a french fashion doll's wardrobe of the 1870's.
Complete with her own history and retaining her original extensive wardrobe, Victoria is a rarity in the world of antique dolls. Companion to a little girl named Carrie Louise Schiff, who grew up to become Lady Alexander of Faversham, Kent, England, Victoria traveled the world and comes down to us with an astonishing provenance.
Not only does Victoria possess beautiful and well-preserved original costumes in the exuberant style of the 1870s, her body is the seldom found blown leather example from the French doll manufacturer Pierre Vincent Clèment. This body was an extraordinary invention for the period, and has stood up admirably to the test of time.
Many dolls have been used for philanthropic efforts throughout the years, and Victoria is one such doll. Lady Alexander generously donated Victoria and all her possessions as a fundraising raffle during Red Cross Week in 1943, which contributed greatly to the charitable efforts of the town of Faversham during World War II.
Book does INCLUDE A PATTERN FOR VICTORIA'S RIDING HABIT. It was taken directly from Victoria's own riding habit and is very elegant in its simplicity. The costume has explicit instructions and can be machine or hand sewn.
We know you will be thrilled to add this MUST HAVE book filled with research and preservation of the treasures of the past to your collection. This wonderful book is AUTOGRAPHED by the author, Denise Buese. Contains 80 pgs of fantastic photos and the pattern.
