~Fawn Zeller Doll~

This is a fabulous, all original, one-of-a-kindMamie Eisenhower doll, hand madeby artist Fawn Zeller, who was one of the original founders of the National Institute of American Doll Artists (NIADA), 1963. This piece has Zeller's hand-written plate on the wooden base, and her name label sewn inside the dress. This beautiful doll is a wonderful depiction of Mamie Eisenhower in her 1953 inaugural ball gown; a pink peau de soie gown embroidered with more than 2,000 rhinestones, it is one of themost popular in the Smithsonian's collection of inaugural gowns. With life-like features and extraordinary detail, this is a beautiful work of artfor the serious collector.

Excellent condition with very minor age wear on the wooden base. It measures 10 1/2" tall, and with the dome it measures 13 1/4" tall; the base is a large 9 1/2" diameter, the dome has a 25 1/2" circumference.

*Please view my other listings to see General Dwight Eisenhower, listed separately.

About NIADA dolls:

"NIADA dolls are not copies of an old doll (although an artist may choose to caricature, spoof or make a social commentary on such a doll). It is not a conglomeration of limbs made from molds made by other artists; it is not a beautiful head placed on a stump of a body. It is a complete entity. It conveys a message, usually some facet of culture, which mirrors life and can be a record for future generations. NIADA dolls also depict the past, capture the present and, in many instances, interprets the artist's own version of [other] influences. Each artist has an individual style."
