Wendy "Violets Are Blue" (#2)
"Violets Are Blue" is an uncatalogued doll from 1957 that was made in very very limited quantities and there are just a handful known to exist currently in collections. Surely a first cousin to "The Cherry Twins" as her outfit is similarly styled. The baby blue organdy skirt of the dress is embroidered with intense purple violets, green sprigs, and a matching scalloped hemline. Underneath is a baby blue organdy half slip and panties. The bodice is crisply white with matching lace details. Her cornflower blue cloche hat is fashioned from rows of opaque scalloped straw alternating with rows of translucent straw. Adorable bending knee Wendy has chestnut red hair, big blue eyes and allover rosy coloring. An exquisite little doll. $1650.
