Alice Porcelain Doll by Thelma Resch

Image

This pretty porcelain doll belonged to my mother, it is of Alice in Wonderland by Thelma Resch from MasterPiece Gallery Limited Edition Artist Dolls.

Image

This doll was made in 1998. It is large, almost 2.5 feet tall. Amazing realistic details. Long straight blonde hair, big blue eyes, detailed porcelain hands and feet. She wears the classic Victorian blue dress and white apron you remember from the Disney movie. She even has a lace petticoat, bloomers, and red and white striped stockings. (The Cheshire Cat would approve.)

Although really a collectors doll for adults, Alice is ready for any little girls tea party as she comes with a tiny porcelain teacup and saucer. Box says for kids 8 yrs and up and with the size and price tag I believe them.

Image

My mom bought this for my niece when she was going through her Alice in Wonderland phase. Only 2000 of this fairytale characters were made, this is # 1949. Stored in the original shipper box.

Image

It included the doll, box, doll stand, teacup, and certificate of authenticity.

Image

This item weighs about 10 pounds and the box is 32 in long. Estimated value $100 to $200.

    As far as I know, these dolls were all made between 1993 and 1998 and in a batch of 2000. Look at the back of the neck on your doll. Should have a date stamp, artist signature and number. Mine also included an certificate with this info. Thelma Resch does make other dolls. It is possible someone just changed the stocking and added a pin.
