Name: Alice Roosevelt 1990 National Convention in
Maker: Kathy Redmond for UFDC
Description: Alice Roosevelt as a child, later Alice
Longworth ( 1884 - 1980 ) was the only child of President Theodore
Roosevelt and his wife Alice Hathaway Lee. She grew up to be the belle
of Washington society during her father's administration. A striking
beauty, her outspokenness and antics won the hearts of the American
people who nicknamed her "Princess Alice".
She has a bisque porcelain shoulder head, a cloth torso and bisque-porcelain
lower arms and legs. Like all Redmond dolls, she also has a gorgeously
hand-painted face and molded blonde hair. She is costumed in a Victorian-style
lace dress with blue sash, a half-slip and matching bloomers. She
also wears molded high-buttoned shoes and a molded blue ribbon in
her pretty sausage-curled molded hair.
The molding on her front shoulder plate didn't photograph well. It
is very intricate with a blue bow and her name: ALICE found the name;
body: On the back shoulder plate is the artist's signature, as well
as a cat symbol, 1990, and; C UFDC//WASHINGTON.
