1843 Plantation Hitty Hand Carved Wood Doll By Vivian:
This wonderful little Hitty whom I have named Hitty "Serena" is perhaps one of the sweetest and most endearing Hitties thathas ever come to live in my Hitty house. She was described by her creator as"1843 Plantation Hitty" when I first came across her and fell in love with her gentle, serene smile. Her clothing is a reflection of the Old South, as are her quiet grace and impecable manners. Hitty "Serena" will come to you dressed in her original clothing which consists of : lace and ribbonedged pantalettes; matching lace and ribbon edged full skirted half slipwith crinoline underneath; a fine rose pink cotton dress with a full skirt and puff sleeves; a crispwhite organdy pinaforewith lace trim at the neck, sleeves, and hem which is belted with a rose trimmed sash that ties at the back; a straw hat with matching rose and ribbon trim, and also alittle oval shaped carry box decorated with matching rose and ribbon trim. Please see pictures for details of the clothing. This beautiful little doll stands 6 1/2 " tall and is hand carved of basswood. She has been painted with acrylic paint which was then sealed with several coats of sealer. She is dated and signed on the back by her maker: 2012 and the initials S.G. within a large V. Hitty "Serena" prefers sitting to standing but she can be coaxed to stand when required to do so. I will miss little "Serena" but I feel it is now time for me to slowlylet go of some of my Hitties and allow them to find their way into someone else's life and heart. I only hope that Serena will be loved and cherished by whomever choses to adopt her today. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them before offerding. Thank you for your interest.
