This sweet lady is a vintage-style Santos Cage Doll. She has a medium complexion with brown hair and eyes. Her hair is molded brown (which helps to hold on to tiny crowns), with a cute curl in the front. She is painted with a gold dress fading in to a dark brown wooden cage and base. She is approx. 20" tall, with a 5.5" wide base. Her body and cage are made of wood, and her head and hands are cast resin. The lady's elbows & hands are jointed, providing her with limited motion/postures.
Fashioned after the antique European Santos, they are carefully hand crafted. To make the hand painted doll unique, the craftsmen distress it; picking & choosing from a range of faux aging techniques. Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when being 'antiqued'. This is character, and not a flaw.
All photos are from our studio collection. Your doll will be very, very similar to the lady shown, as hand finishing may yield slightly different works. Please keep in mind that the arm motion-/posture-capacity of your doll may differ from (i.e. be more, less, or similar to that of) the doll depicted.
