Welcome back to Land of Oz Dolls! Newly Listed On My Website! I just wanted to share another beautiful Bru with you. This one is the Bru Jne 8.

This gorgeous, museum quality 17″ Bru 8 antique reproduction porcelain doll was lovingly created by “Millie” winning, world renowned artist, Connie Zink of Land of Oz Dolls. She was made from the VL-27 Bru Jne 8 Virginia LaVorgna head mold. This doll is perfection at its best. Her porcelain head is on a FB14S composition body from New York Doll Products. She stands 18 1/2″ tall on her wooden base doll stand. (Allow height on shelf for stand and hat, doll alone is 17″ tall). The wooden base doll stand is included. She has beautiful light blue Schoepfer paperweight eyes with intense depth, the photos just do not do the eyes justice. She has a striking vintage new (never used) old store stock Cheveux French Human Hair wig from the late 1980’s . The costume is made from a beautiful shade of purple “raw” silk. The dress with antique lace trim and a bonnet  was created by Pam Willits. She also has a beige cotton slip and underwear, along with cream hand made leather shoes and hand crocheted cotton stockings.

Isn’t she gorgeous? She is probably one of my favorites I have ever painted and I just love this costume. This costume was created by Lorna Yates of Lorna’s Lovable Dolls. I believe this was a pattern originally shown in a Gildebrief magazine. I know I just love it.

15 Inch Bru 13 Frenchette by Connie Zink

I have just added this beautiful 15″ Bru 13 “Frenchette” series doll to my Dolls For Sale page. Quantity is limited to one.

This beautiful, museum quality 15” Bru 13 “Frenchette” antique reproduction porcelain doll was lovingly created by “Millie” winning, world renowned artist, Connie Zink of Land of Oz Dolls. “Frenchettes” were created in 2009 by Connie as a series of antique reproduction dolls all using the same size body so the many costumes available are interchangeable. The artistry is superb with wonderfully detailed French eyebrows, beautifully spaced eyelashes, perfectly shaped lips with accents, and a hint of lavender eye shadow. Her porcelain head is on a B-413 composition body handmade by Connie and Dennis Zink. She has beautiful blue paperweight eyes from some old store stock that had been put away for years. She has a light blonde mohair curled wig with bangs.

This doll is being listed as a dressed doll and an undressed doll at this time. If buying the dressed doll she comes in the costume as shown. It is a beautiful slate blue silk dress with antique lace trim and a bonnet that was created by Pam Willits. She also has a white cotton slip and underwear, along with tan suede leather shoes handmade by Pam and crocheted silk stockings. She is available as an undressed doll for $375.00 with wooden base doll stand. If you are looking to add an exquisite “Bru 13” to your collection of antique reproduction dolls, this may be the one for you.  Dressed as shown this doll is $495.00.  Shipping and insurance to continental U.S is $20.00 by United Parcel Service. International shipping fees will be calculated upon request my shopping cart buttons do not reflect international shipping prices. If you are an international buyer you may purchase and additional shipping charges can be billed to you through Paypal.
