ABIGAIL AND JANE AUGUSTA Wendy Lawton Doll
1 in stock
Abigail poses seating in a delicately-turned Windsor chair, holding her precious doll, Jane Augusta. Abigail is approx. 16 inches tall, porcelain head and hands on a 13-jointed, hand-carved wooden body. Windsor chair is hand-carved and bent of select hardwoods, exclusively for The Lawton Doll Company. Hand-rubbed finish has been gently aged to simulate generations of use. An original sculpt by Wendy Lawton, Jane Augusta is created in the tradition of the papier mache Milliner’s Models of the early nineteenth century. Composition and hand-painted to replicate a subtly aged patina, Jane Augusta patiently joins Abigail in sitting for the limner’s brush.
Abigail with her Jane Augusta come in original box, with signed Certificate of Authenticity showing 3 of 250. Also, a signed card by Wendy Lawton authenticated the set as being from the collection of her mother. Chair included, of course, as well.
