Cathy Sanders, miniature doll artisan. Sanders has been creating dolls for years and she's rubbed shoulders at shows with the best of them, everyone from Marcia Backstom to Susan Harmon to James Carrington. Her creations and personality left me in awe, she is a true miniature artisan with a love for her craft. She has decided to bestow Magpie Miniatures to curate her collection and find a special home for each one of her own treasures.
The group photo is just a tiny selection of what's to come. Now remember, each one is one of a kind, there's only one of each. She used these pieces in her own shows or loved them so much she couldn't bear to let go... This is an amazing Victorian woman doll from this collection, it is the most exquisite work I have personally seen in a long time.
She has a stunning hand sculpted, feminine sultry looking face with pouty red lips, gleaming eyes, and beautiful face shape. She also has incredible sculpted hands with delicate fingers, highly realistic with painted nails, one hand is reaching at the brim of her hat. She is dressed in a luxurious Victorian costume in a color palette of black and sky blue silk fabrics , along with a matching exceptional hat.The bodice has silk trims, ruffled ascot, bows, lace, gathered sleeves. The skirt has four layers including a hand pleated blue silk layer, topped with a sheer black silk chiffon over skirt. Peek under the skirt and you will see tiny silk pantaloons, fishnet stockings, and handmade matching shoes. She comes with her own custom stand so that it doesn't interfere with the pure magnificence of her costume. The hat is decked out in more layers of lace, netting, and plumes of feathers. She is a piece of fashion history, truly one of a kind and created all by hand. 1:12 Scale, 5 1/2" tall, 6" with hat.
