Lovely Large Papier-Mache Doll Repaired & Ready to Return Home

Were you wondering what ever happened to the beautiful papier-mache doll that I was restoring several months ago?  She has finally gone home. ❤  I had planned to return her to her owner at our March doll club meeting.  Unfortunately the weather interfered with our meeting, which was cancelled due to snow 😦   I couldn’t attend the April meeting because I was out of town, so this doll got to stay with me until May.  She was a perfect house guest!

Here are a few photographs of her after I did some minimal restoration.  Just enough to let her beauty shine through, without erasing her age and grace.restored large papier-mache doll www.izannahwalker.comrestored large papier-mache doll www.izannahwalker.comrestored large papier-mache doll www.izannahwalker.comrestored large papier-mache doll www.izannahwalker.com

  1. Paula, I just went back and read the first posting from when you started with this doll. I know this wonderful doll appreciates you taking such loving care of her. The gentle repair you gave her is magnificent. Oh, I would love to see her all dressed after her owner finds her a lovely dress. Dolls like this one are becoming rare and she is a rare beauty.

  2. Paula, the handmade body, hands, and fingers are so well made. Great time and care was put into building a body for such a wonderful head and shoulder.

  3. Mary she has a magnificent body! It is all hand stitched with tiny meticulous stitches, especially the fingers ❤ I'm sure she will wind up dressed in something fabulous 🙂 She is large enough to wear children's clothing, so it shouldn't be hard to find her a wonderful wardrobe.

  4. A rare and lovely doll! You did just the right amount for her in my opinion. Good Job! as we say to the grandchildren here. e

  5. Thank you!
