Sort of reminds me of Anita Healy's work. No idea for sure.

I stumbled on this OOAK by an unknown doll artist on eBay a few weeks ago. The auction was bid or best offer, so I submitted a best offer. To my surprise, the seller accepted. Once she arrived here, I really was struck by how incredibly detailed she is and how exquisitely she had been repainted.
There is nothing to indicate who created her, but I’d love to know. This is some serious skill. In addition to a total repaint, the bodice is hand-beaded, as in stitched and not glued. The jewelry is well made and the gown fits her like a glove. I forgot to photograph her shoes but they have small silver buckled hand-painted on them. She really is gorgeous and so much more stunning in person.
