Beautiful Antique English Poured Wax Doll Amelia - A Long Haired Pierotti Beauty For Sale
Could Amelia possibly be any prettier?! I don't think so. You decide!
This dainty 16.5 inch Pierotti antique English poured wax doll is such a
picture-book little girl with her long, beautiful original inserted
silky blonde mohair, her lovely little mouth and those cobalt blue glass
eyes which really seem to see! The Pierotti family's gift for
doll-making was such a wonderful legacy to doll collectors - what pleasure they have
brought to so many people young and old.
Our little Miss needs your help to dress her. But it is no hardship to
see her sitting there in her all-original underwear - a gorgeous lace
trimmed Victorian onesie (all in one underwear), with matching petticoat
with bustle effect back and wool half slip. The perfect Victorian
Her clean original cloth body bears a good stamp F. Aldis, for
Frederic Aldis, the toy store in Belgrave Mansions in upmarket Belgravia in London between
1876 and 1900. I have had in my possession several wax dolls sold
through Aldis, and they have all had particularly pretty faces, all with
the cherubic pouting mouth, and high quality blown glass eyes.
Her head and shoulderplate have no breaks or repairs, and her poured wax
limbs are in relatively good order. Things to note are one small
triangular piece at the top of her left arm which was restored at some
point in time and what appears to have been a clean break to the ankle.
This has been reattached and no wax is missing at all. It just looks
like a tidy and inconspicuous line above her rather neat little foot - I actually didn't even notice it for a very long time!
All in all, in spite of her little mishaps, she is a very charming
little doll which tugs somewhat at the heartstrings. Ah, little
Amelia...where in the world are you off to next, I wonder?
Thank you for viewing her.
