Cabinet card girl with her French fashion Doll Mid 1800's
I am sure she was wealthy by her dress and her dolls . This is a French Fashion doll circa 1860 appx . hard to see her face clear but her clothes and body shape she is most defiantly a French Fashion as well as the Little girl .They had the most magnificent clothes in the time period but not to comfortable :-)

    WOW...the little girls face says it all!!!! "I am bored and rich and look at my doll that is costly. We look alike! And I told my Mum to buy it for me!"

    I think you got it perfectly right Moonstone :-) Although they only got to play with their dolls on Sunday's and that accounts for their long survival . They were treated with respect and not handled rough . Parents supervised play time
    Thank you for the love :-) xoxo

    I've seen a lot of tintypes of girls holding dolls, but this is the best image I've seen in years.

    A superior postcard, I have never seen such an elaborately dressed doll in any of the images I have come across.

    Hi Phil
    This is how all French Fashion dolls were dressed originally . Very elaborate , Very expensive and the girls dress took a great amount of skill by a seamstress. I used to make reproductions of the clothes on doll from vintage material for the dolls in the museum . They are difficult and many layers . Thank you for the love !~

    Beautiful image manikin. If possible the photo collector in me would like to see the entire cabinet card-- is it US or French?

    i would guess that it's from the usa. i love how it looks like the girl is trying to imitate her doll, but she looks wantingly as if she feels she didn't quite get it right - which she didn't. it looks like she only had a small piece of that black damask [or whatever], and it only went so far...
