c1981 Susan Dumper Bisque Antique Style Mignonette Girl Doll In Sailor Costume @ £48.00

Susan Dumper was a highly regarded doll artisan who sold her dolls through the famous Singing Tree Dolls House Shop in London.  She is also known for making the dolls that reside in the old Pembroke Palace Dolls House at Wilton House (Wiltshire). She used antique dolls to make her moulds and created them in her own distinctive style, they are highly collectable. I am told that her bisque mignonettes have once or twice been wrongly mistaken for being antique by previous owner. Susan signed and dated her dolls on the back of the hair line, which are mostly hidden under the hair, but the date can usually be seen.

Here is a gorgeous all bisque mignonette girl doll by Susan Dumper and dated ’81 on the back of her hair line. She has moveable limbs, and a swivel head. Her facial features including her glass eyes are beautiful. Her hair is attractively styled, and she has tiny bead earrings dangling from her ears. Her little blue/black laced up boots detail have been painted in a very distinct style that Susan Dumper was known for. Her lovely vintage style sailor dress, jacket and knitted knickers have been artisan made. Overall, she is in an excellent pre-loved condition. She stands at a height of 4”.
