Porcelain dolls - Googly reproduction #1

This is another of my dolls, made in 1998-99, she is a Googly (the shape of the eyes and mouth give it away) and is called Alice (after my granny). This one only stands about 20cm high - she is a wee sweetie! Has a cotton body and was also hand-painted. I made her outfit, which includes layered petticoats and the pinafore.

Unfortunately that year there was a company that manufactured glass dolls' eyes which had a problem with the coloured pupils going cloudy a few months after being used and you can see that has happened here with Alice.
