18" Mary Art Doll

Regular price $58.00

18” Mary is one of a kind tan linen doll with blonde hair, hand stitched face and blushed cheeks. 

Mary is made in honor of our favorite back to school nursery rhyme and her outfit references the time period when she famously brought her lamb to class in Massachusetts.  

She comes in a replica of an 18th century sky blue silk duppioni dress with silk gauze neck ruff. She has white lace trimmed cotton underpinnings with pin tucked details. Her shoes are the palest blue soft leather with ribbon ties. And her blonde cotton hair is hand stitched into the sweetest style. Her dress and shoes are removable. 

Mary can be made in other skin tones/hair styles upon request. Best for gentle play or display age 6 and up due to the delicate nature of her silk clothes.

Practice storytelling, communication and cuddle with your new friend. Each heirloom quality doll is made in Utah with love. 

Mary is made of a combination of linen and cotton with silk and leather accents with Poly filling. She’s perfect for storytelling and creative play with her best friend, lamb

Friends from Basil Village do best with gentle handwashing or spot cleaning. Mary’s dress is dry clean only and 100% silk exclusive of trim.
