This Porcelain Doll Alsatian Girl with Black Lace Apron measures 30 cm/11,8 inches including her stand which keeps her standing upright wherever you want her to shine. Her head and limbs are made of porcelain and handmade and the body is made of soft fabric and stuffed. Her beautiful eyes are made from glass and the material for her lovely golden hair is also used for professional wigs. Our porcelain doll’s handmade clothing is made from fabric used for real traditional costumes.
Porcelain Doll Alsatian Costume
The Alsace is a picturesque region stretching along the Upper Rhine with a unique culture: tossed between Germany and France several times over the centuries, it has developed into a sort of melting pot uniting the best of both countries. The traditional costumes are a big part of the Alsatian culture. The ladies wear long skirts that are usually unicolor, in our case bright red. The floral ribbon just above the seam as well as the apron and the bodice are made from fine, expensive cloth and show the status of an Alsatian woman. The most important feature of the traditional costume, however, is the winged bonnet: an impressive stiff black bonnet made from shimmering taffeta that dates back to the 18th century and is still worn today.
