I fell hook line and sinker for another doll just recently. Although I had heard of the famous German Zwergnese dolls beforehand and viewed a few on the internet, I had never seen one that appealed to me enough to bring home. That was until I met Violet . . . she is 50cm tall, is fully made of phthalate-free vinyl which is harmless to health, has 5 joints for mobility, a hand-painted face, wig, real leather shoes which are deliberately larger than her feet, high-quality clothing and is packed in high quality cloth bag for her journey to her new home.
Her designer Nicole Marschollek-Menzner, has a knack of making her dolls appear incredibly childlike. The combination of an unexpected painted expression with a slightly ungainly posture, and garments which clothe the doll in such a way as to make it look almost alive, simply amazes me.
I can see myself looking for more of these dolls down the track, I really doubt if I could ever stop at owning just one, they are far too pretty . . . don't you agree?
Of course Abigail may find her way into my shopping basket next . . . you know how much I adore little red haired girls!

I could also be tempted by this little sweetie by Kath Kruse (if she ever comes back in stock). I mean, she is after all, quite the little darling and very hard to resist with her rosebud lips and all those beautiful loose ringlets. BTW if you want to know more about the artist behind this doll, just click on her name to view her history, it dates back to 1905!
