Handmade Porcelain Ball Jointed Doll in purple by Frankie Clement


  • Details
    This doll and a few others are handmade one-of-a-kind ball jointed porcelain doll made with love by my grandmother, Frankie Clement, a fabulous ceramicist and artist. As much as I would like to keep the many dolls in my collection, I simply haven’t the space for them. They deserve to be kept in perfect condition in a glass case to be admired, but I cannot give them that home now. So I must part with the majority of them.

    This doll is created in the finest pretty pink porcelain, high fired and painted with permanent china colors. Her body is polished and blushed at the joints to give a real flesh appearance. The fingernails and toenails were carved and painted. This is not just a doll pulled from a mold but each one was hand carved so that they are each unique.

    My grandmother glued real hair eyelashes on the eyelids as well.

    The wig is a standard nylon doll wig.

    The limbs are held together with elastic cord allowing for freedom of movement and posing. She is fully articulated with knee joints, hip, shoulder, elbow, and neck joints.

    The clothes are handmade, poly-cotton blend with nylon lace and satin bows. She has doll glasses and store bought nylon socks and leather shoes. She is wearing bloomers, a purple slip with three buttons and a purple matching dress with satin bow as well as a matching hat with lace and satin bow.

    This doll comes with the stand.

    She measures 21” tall. Her shoulders are 7” across.

    Due to the nature of this one of a kind doll, returns are not accepted.
