My portrait dolls are made of porcelain, with china painted faces. The cloth bodies are fully poseable with heads that turn. The hands can be permanently posed in any position you want. Please indicate this and the body pose on the order form.
All costumes are researched and as authentic as possible. If you know what costume you want, please give me as many details as you can on the order form below. Also, please send photos or a xerox copy of the costume. If you don't know what you want you can also search the web for costume ideas and e-mail me the URL when you find what you are looking for. Portrait dolls are also available undressed for those of you who prefer to make your own costumes.
Since my portrait dolls are one-of-a-kind dolls, they take a good bit longer to make than my regular dollhouse dolls. Orders may take up to 6 months, depending on the number of orders ahead of yours. I will try to give you some idea at the time of the order. Most portrait dolls cost $395.00 dressed and $325.00 undressed. Very elaborate costumes may cost more. I should be able to determine this from your description. A non-refundable deposit of $150.00 is required for each doll. The balance shall be remitted just prior to the doll being sent. I will e-mail you when it is ready. Please make all checks payable to Debbie L. Olsen. Florida residents must pay the sales tax applicable to their own county. To order, please fill out the order form as fully as possible. I will e-mail you with the estimated time of delivery as well as the address where you should send your deposit and photos. I will get in touch with you shortly to discuss your doll more fully.
