This one of a kind heirloom doll was handcrafted in Australia by Melbourne artist Kate Karsten. Each doll is signed and dated.

Made with beautiful natural materials using cotton, linen, wool, and lace.
Warm, gentle and cosy to hold she is made from tea stained antique cotton. Her limbs are carefully hand stitched with wooden button joints so they can move. Each doll is delicately dusted with a special soft powder.

Her hair is made from 100% Australian alpaca wool and is carefully hand stitched into place.
Detailed features are hand stitched with cotton.
Her delicate dress with lining is made from linen, lace and cotton.
Fine bloomers are made from antique linen tied with silk.
Her delicate apron is also made from antique cotton with a silk tie.
Little boots are hand painted teeny-tiny laces.

A beautiful crochet shawl is made from the finest Australian wool.
She is wearing a secret rose fragrance, the perfume so beautiful like a specially picked garden rose.

Her hair is hand stitched in place therefore cannot be brushed.
Little laces are also hand stitched in place therefore cannot be removed.
Her shawl, dress, apron and bloomers are removable.

Due to the delicate nature of being handmade she is very fragile, therefore unsuitable for young children.

An Hierloom art doll to be cherished by many generations to come.
