Just two for tonight, after a busy day with little time for photography.

This is Lucy, a life-size baby doll (about 27 inches) by German doll artist Annette Himstedt. She has a firmly stuffed cloth body and vinyl head, lower arms, and lower legs. She has bent legs so she doesn’t stand, but she can sit up nicely by herself. Lucy has blue glass eyes and a strawberry blond mohair wig. Her original outfit is packed away, and she is wearing a baby outfit of top, pants, socks, and shoes.


Himstedt made some beautiful dolls and Lucy is one of my favorites from her. She was made in 2003 and has a very sweet face. (I suspect her wig is a replacement by a previous owner, not the original, but I like it anyway.)
