REAL 3-D DOLL
One of a kind Artist Doll
Priced MUCH Lower than Purchase Cost!
by Jude St.Vincent
My mom bought this doll in 1994 from a doll artist in Escanaba Michigan. The certification tag is identified "Carrie" and signed by the artist, dated 2-25-94. You can read the front of the tag. The price sticker says "Dona's Dolls $125" Dona is/was Jude's mom who had a doll hospital in Escanaba at the time. Complete copy on the back of the tag reads:
"It is herby certified that this doll - Carrie - is an authentic, hand-sculpted, one-of-a-kind doll by Jude St. Vincent. - (signature & date) - Original costumes are designed for each doll."
Carrie is a country girl, who is excited she has just found an egg from her best chicken, and is calling her mama to come see!
She is a one-of-a-kind hand built doll. Made from Cernit or Super Sculpy, a kind of sculpting clay used by doll artists. The sclupture is low-temp baked to make the head and limbs. The eyes are glass and inserted during the sculpting process. The detail of her teeth carving is quite amazing. Lips & eyebrows, and stocking & shoes are painted on.
The body is cloth, her cute braided hair is mohair, and her clothes are hand-sewn. The tiny tatted style trim and bitsy pattern of the dress are perfectly proportioned. Mother paid $125 for her at the time, and I bought the doll at auction when they moved to a smaller home about 12 years ago. Now I am making room for others of Mother's dolls to move in.
Size: 9" tall.
I recall a lovely visit Mother and I made to Dona's house back at the time she bought the doll. Dona's house was full of dolls, doll clothes, toys, and dollhouses. I was especially intrigued with the 4 Christmas trees left standing all year. One was loaded with small dolls, one was a red-white-blue USA theme, one was teddy bears and toys and one was full of more traditional Christmas things including many antique ornaments.
