THE ABSOLUTE BEST OF EMILY HART AND MARY LAMBETH!
This doll was painted in 2011... my latest and finest painting... She is just breathtaking!
Poured in "Lady White" porcelain and with many layers of China paint meticulously applied and firings in between each layer
The skin tone is very desirable ultra pale and with eye shadow.
The Bébé Francais has very long thin close together eyelashes .... very hard to paint

The head features the incredible eyes that only HAND GLASS OF ENGLAND makes... color extra light blue
