Joanna, Blue Danube Waltz - Musical Franklin Mint Heirloom Doll
This doll, made by Franklin Mint Heirloom Dolls in 1985, is a beautiful re-creation of the romantic Viennese waltz era which became fashionable in Vienna in the 1780s.
Joanna is approximately 49 cm tall. Her head, arms and legs are sculpted of fine bisque porcelain and she is meticulously hand-painted.
She has beautiful big hazel eyes. Her brunette hair is decorated with pretty garden flowers of pinks and blues which match the flowers decorating her dress, and a beautiful pearl necklace adorns her throat.
She is authentically costumed in the fashion of 19th century Vienna, wearing an off-the-shoulders deep rose pink satin ball dress with two matching rosettes and ribbons, lavishly trimmed with ivory lace and pretty flowers.
Her 3 layers of underclothes consist of a white crinoline skirt, lace-edged ivory petticoat and matching pantaloons. Her dancing slippers are painted ivory porcelain.
A rear concealed musical box plays ?The Blue Danube Waltz? by Joann Strauss.
She comes with a Certificate of Authenticity
