Our Porcelain Doll Swiss Bern Girl measures 30 cm/11,8 inches including her stand which keeps her standing upright wherever you want her to look best. 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.
The traditional festive costume of Bern is one of the most elegant in the whole of Switzerland. The red aprons show the wealth of the region as in former times it was very expensive and laborious to produce red dye. The dress is also adorned by silver ornaments and it is a lovely tradition to wear a fresh rose on the bodice. The skirt is long and black and of course a lady will wear a bright white blouse with puff sleeves and lace trimmings on the sleeves. The bonnet, made form light beige starched fabric and lined with black lace, is typical for central Switzerland. This elegant porcelain doll will charm you every time you look at her!
