This magnificently crafted “baby” has been designed by internationally acclaimed doll artist and sculptor Lee Middleton. Lee began creating her endearing dolls in 1978. Then sculpting dolls at her kitchen table, her first dolls were modeled after her own daughter and son. Lee captured their likenesses in a manner which soon gave rise to numerous private commissioned dolls for friends and relatives. Today each of these collectibles is molded, hand painted and assembled in Lee’s own factory in Belpre , Ohio . Sadly Lee passed away in 1997.
18" Cherish sleeping doll by Lee Middleton from the "Where are babies born?" collection. This doll has blonde hair and is wearing a mint green top, adorned with a beautiful lace collar with little pink roses. It has matching pants. She also has on a real Pampers diaper. A little white headband keeps her hair from her face. She also has her little green teddy bear. Her hands, feet and face are hard vinyl and she has a cloth torso with bean bag arms and legs.
She comes in her original box with her little Bible, her wrist tags, her COA. She is signed by Lee on the back of her neck. She is numbered # 2501 of 5000.
