Beautiful " ARIEL" By Artist Janis Berard. ARIEL is articulated and a jointed doll. Signed on the back of her neck by the artist.What a beautiful doll this one is. Her face is so pretty and in a great condition. Dressed in a Victorian costume from head to toe in great detail. Ivory Moire Dress with all of the lace and trims one would expect in an authentic Victorian costume complete with silk rose and satin ribbon embellished bonnet.
Leather ankle booties complete the costume. Lush blonde long curls of modacrylic hair. Stunningly beautiful face paint up of pure innocence and sparkling blue glass eyes. They don't make dolls like these anymore. This is a very heavy doll.
She weighs 6 pounds since she is ALL porcelain. You can not use a regular stand. A heavy duty doll stand will be included. I did have her seating down. I felt she was safer than on the stand.She was displayed with all my other Janis Berard dolls. But you do have the choice of having her displayed standing up if you choose.
You definitely want to keep her safe. Displayed ONLY in my home. One owner only - ME ###128522. No cracks - No Chips - No Repairs - No discoloration - Wearing her original clothes - accessories and Hair style.
The porcelain is as New. The box is in pretty good shape for it's age. She was released and bought by me in 2000. Unfortunately I lost the COA. Lots and lots of questions and offers on my dolls which is great??But first let's share some information so we don't waste each other's time. I can't keep up with so many anymore. I acquired all of these dolls BRAND NEW many years ago, paid full price for them, have them insured through out the years and cared for them all these years.
It is not easy or cheap to be a doll collector, not if you want to keep them on DISPLAYED in MINT condition like all my dolls are after so many years. Some even longer than 30. I know exactly how much I paid for each one of them, and how much their worth is today! I will not bargain with their prices. I will not answer to lower offers.
If you are interested in more than one/or several of my dolls then please let me know and I will be definitely happy to give you a great discount.
