If you’ve never seen one of these antique French boudoir cabinet dolls, prepare yourself!

This is a very rare 1900’s Sofa or Boudoir Doll, it’s a standing Doll and she has a secret cabinet hidden under her skirt, the cabinet is situated on the back, if you lift the skirt the cabinet with doors pops up, quite special, I have seen my share of Sofa-Dolls but not like this one. The Height of the doll is about 46 inches, the pannier/crinoline’s circumference is 62 inch. The hair is made out of beautiful silk, the stunning dress out of velvet and golden brocade, the head is covered with a silk fabric, the head itself is made out of a hard material, probably wood.

Troy and I stopped by the thrift store quickly, I found two of these perfect little wall cabinets as well as a large wooden jewel box and such 💞🐌🌿🙌🔮🐚✨
