Original VALENTINE Folk Art Primitive Heart Doll OOAK

I have just finished this Valentine dollie. She has been heavily distressed. This is an original one of a kind design-made with no patter. Her nose is needle-sculpted, her eyes and lips painted and her brows are hand-stiched with black floss. She wears a red crown made of a civil war reproduction fabric that matches her heart ornies. She is also embellished with an antique white lace and a third heart made of a turquoise fabric & brown polka dots. The heart ornies are finished with 3 rusty bells and have been hand-sewn in place. She measures 9 inches tall- including her crown.
~SOLD~ Thank you!!!
