- Sallie is 32cm = 12.5" high

- Sallie is a porcelain ball jointed doll

- Everything in this work is carefully and patiently hand made by the artist.

- Sallie's head mold will be limited to 30 pieces worldwide

- All Sallie dolls are unique because I always sculpt the eyes and some of the features in the leather hard faze (thatís when the porcelain is just out of the mold and itís like soft clay).

- This doll is painted with porcelain paints that are fired in a kiln oven at 720 degrees Celsius (1328 Fahrenheit) and became permanent. The porcelain paint is translucent and therefore several layers have to be applied in order to achieve deepness and expression and bring the doll to live. It takes approximately one week to paint one doll because after each layer is applied and fired, the kiln needs to cool dawn for a period of around 8 hours. It's a long process but really worth it because these paints are permanent, they don't suffer any alteration with sunlight and they cannot be removed or scratched.

- All the porcelain parts that form this doll are assembled with a complex spring mechanism. Every joint has a separate spring that is hold by a steel pin allowing movement (the spring works like a muscle).

- The spring mechanism allows the joints to hold a big variety of poses that mimic the human body movement.

- Every joint is leather lined, witch means that there is a layer of thin leather in between the sphere and the socket. This allows control of the movement and protects the joints. I found a process of hiding the leather inside the sockets that works wonderfully and does not change the function of the leather lining, plus it looks much better!  I use this process only on the knees and elbows joints.

- Sallie has a one of a kind costume made with antique French silk fabric and cotton laces. The clothes are machine and hand sewed by me. This doll also comes with underwear, socks and hand made leather boots

- Sallie has top quality, hand blown glass eyes. The eyes are fixed and cannot be replaced.

- Sallie's wig is hand made using the finest mohair. The wig can be removed and changed by another one.

- The little bunny is one of a kind made with polymer clay and dressed with vintage laces and fabrics. *

NOTE: all Sallie dolls will have their own character and personality. The face painting, the eyes, wig and costume gives all these dolls a unique appearance. I consider all Sallie dolls one of a kind!
