~On her pedestal~ Another Wooden, Grodnertal Tuck Comb Doll

What is this dolly perched upon you ask?
Why it is her little presentation box....
If you look closely, (click on the pictures to enlarge) you can see a name on the sampler attached to the lid?
That is what I've named her... Please meet, Mary Susannah Causton, born in 1864. Wish I was aging as gracefully as she! ;-)
She just loves how it makes her feel when she is placed atop of this box. Like "Queen of the World!!!!"

She will be on Ebay (click here) this evening if all goes well.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

A most amazing beauty. Nan, she is wonderful. I love her layers of ruffles. I can hear the rustling of her dress from here.


Doreen said...

Nan..she's wonderful..simply lovely! I just love those little feet of hers and the presentation box is wonderful as well.

Both the doll and the presentation box are just delightful! Mary Susannah Causton is an heirloom for sure.

Thankyou so much dear Becky Doreen and Steph!
As you can see I didn't quite get around to listing as there was a bit
of a family emergency last night. All is well now though, thank God (and I am)! Sooooo she will for sure start tonight, fingers crossed.
Hugs and thanks again,
