A new visitor......
Isn't she the sweetest thing you've ever seen? Ladye Superior is our newest guest here at the Inn. She has traveled over the bumpy dusty trails of Texas & NM to fetch a new dress....and she may take home one or two for her sisters, in far too delicate & fragile conditions to travel. She is an antique mid 19th century 'Superior' brand mache doll, in current body nearly 30" tall. I have some projects to finish up before we start her fitting, so to keep her busy I have let her carefully mull thru the bonnets here at the Museum. She was particularly fond of this c1865 silk spoon bonnet, with original fabric & paper flowers. It's nice to have a dolly of right size to model some of the dolly clothes & bits~ she may indeed need to model another or two, before she goes back home!
Welcome Welcome Ladye Superior! I hope you enjoy your stay here with us!
