Name: Father Christmas
The photographs do not capture the sparkle in his eye that the artist created.
His hands are bisque with marvelous translucent painting showing what looks like elderly hands with blue veins.
His black boots are also bisque. The kit included a pattern for a cloth body.
Each doll was to be dressed by its owner, endowing each with an individual personality.
A truly marvelous artist doll. Beverly Walter has retired from doll making, and only 1500 examples exist. I can only assume many kits probably never got assembled.
Dressed in a red velvet, outfit of pants, hat with pom pom and coat trimmed in white faux fur.
