Helena, a petite Victorian beauty


Helena is attired in a striped silk  visiting dress with a trained bustle of the late 1870’s that is trimmed with some of the fine pleating that festooned the skirts and trains of the period. Beneath this lovely outfit, this  very petite one inch scale doll is dressed in brown leather shoes, swiss cotton batiste  pantaloons and a trained petticoat, trimmed in cotton lace.   Her white hat  is molded of fine weave cross stitch fabric trimmed with perle cotton, a thin ribbon braid and feathers.  Her china silk parasol, constructed of a brass rod, jewelry finding tip, glass bead handle and china silk body is trimmed in silk ribbon .
