Created in the beautiful fashion of the Civil War time period, "Mary" is a classically timeless doll from Marie Osmond's "Somewhere in Time" collection. Her dress is crafted in antique-red taffeta and velvet with cream lace trim. "Mary" holds a "handkerchief" doll, which originated during the Civil War when there was little money, so women made dolls for the children out of handkerchiefs, particularly those of their fathers who had gone off to war, which helped ease the pain of separation. These were also known as "church dolls", which provided a quiet toy for a child's amusement during the church service, because they made no noise if dropped.
"Mary" is truly a collectible doll sculpted by Karen Scott. She has been hand-crafted with the special attention to detail that is the hallmark of all Marie Osmond dolls.
"Mary" is hallmarked on the back of her neck with Marie's signature and is hand numbered. Limited edition of 300.
