Primitive Folk Art Americana Angel Doll

Amy is 23 ½” tall with a wingspan of 10”. Amy’s body is made from osnaburg that has been painted with acrylics and pencils. Her hand dyed sheep’s wool hair has been needle felted in place then topped with a muslin crown that has been painted, stiffened, and embossed and then pinned in place. I’ve painted her black shoes and antique white socks, and then added tiny rusty bells and gold tinsel garland. This lovely little dolly is dressed in her cotton country patriotic dress that has an outer layer made from vintage linen.
