This is the fifth doll I own by this artist. I bought her in March but she just arrived today. I had no plans to buy another doll but when she reduced the price, I took it as a sign. I'd been admiring her for a while and she was made to be seated; she called out to me like the MARIE LAVEAU Voodoo Queen . I'm not sure what her story is as of yet, but I could envision her hanging over the balcony calling out to pedestrians. The cook, maid and hat shop customer are all made by this artist. I feel the New Orleans dollhouse has a unique spirit about it, the story constantly changes for me. I see it some days as a family home during the 19th century, other times as a historic home turned into a museum with tours given by the descendants of the original family and then as a brothel with girls hanging off the balcony or maybe she is modern and in costume to attract patrons to the museum. This was the story in my mind the day I bought her.
