Victorian Porcelain Dolls
In the Victorian Era, the European
and particularly the Parisian fashion dressmakers sent out small-sized beautiful porcelain
dolls in an effort to share their latest creations. This was the most economic
way to retrieve orders from the ladies in the colonies and the Americas.
These dolls had beautiful porcelain heads, arms and
legs; they were dressed in the latest fashion styles. They were made very
detailed and pretty as to entice the noble ladies, who then would place orders
with the European fashion houses according to the doll sample. The garments
would be made and then sent to them on the next shipment. The carefully made to
scale dolls' clothes were beautiful and included every construction detail. The
dressmakers were able to remove the clothes and use them as patterns, which
they would then grade to the size of the individual customers. There is nothing
quite like Victorian porcelain dolls to really show off a garment, and
we still love the looks of these now collectible beautiful porcelain dolls.
