Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale
Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale is a 22 inch tall fabric doll. She is a born traveler, always ready for a new adventure. Alas, she does not travel lightly! She has an antique trunk, her antique traveling bag, and of, course her hat box, made from a vintage basket. She is wearing a jacket made from fine antique wool. Her skirt is antique silk. It has a few frayed edges on the bottom of the hem ruffle ... I kept them toward the back of the skirt. Her hat is also vintage.
Her face is needle sculpted and painted.
Her hair is soft curly wool.
She comes with a stand but can also sit.
Lady Sapphira Osborn-Peale is now SOLD. Thank you!
This is my very first post and other dolls will be added in the weeks to come.
Please check back to see more from Evi's Country Snippets!
I live in a small town an hour north of New York City on the beautiful Hudson River. I am married to a wonderful and patient man who supports me wherever my fancies take me....be it antiquing, fleamarketing, decorating, etc.......
We have a great son and two absolutely wonderful and bright grandkids. I have been creating dolls and other creations since 1984...loving every minute!.....
My background is in fashion design and marketing. My birthplace is Germany where I lived my first 23 years. In my work, you will often see things that remind me of my childhood in Germany.
I have been fortunate to have been recognized for my work.
My dolls have been featured in Country Living, Country Accent,General Store,and Early American Life.
In 1997 I felt honored to be asked by the Folk Art Museum of New York City to display my work in one of their windows at Rockefeller Center for Christmas.
I will use my blogs to showcase my new creations and dolls that are for sale and you can still find me exhibiting at a few shows a year. Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon!
God bless, Evi
