Doll News Summer 2014 - (Page 90)

The Four Seasons of UFDC's Museum Summer Madeleine in her summer day dress looks as if she is ready to take a stroll in the garden. This is just one of her many dresses that forms part of her extensive wardrobe. Madeleine stands seventeen inches in height. A close up of Madeleine's face shows beautiful modelling and deeply defined eyelids giving the doll a modest attitude. With her pale bisque and plump cheeks it is clear she is an early poupée from the late 1860's. She still retains her original blonde mohair wig. O ne of the most exceptional donations given to the UFDC Museum recently is a French fashion doll named Madeleine de Baine. Madeleine previously resided in the Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art and was generously donated by Rosalie and her family. Look for a full feature article coming soon to DOLL NEWS about this magnificent doll and her fabulous wardrobe and learn of Madeleine's well documented history and her role as a supporter of charities. Madeleine's blown kid leather body (far right) made by the firm of Pierre Victor Clement. This type of body was created by pressing leather into a mold and resulted in a very lightweight body. Among Madeleine's many possessions is this little doll (right). Although her dress is fragile she still remains in her charming original presentation. 90 SUMMER 2014
