Description:

Dorothy Heizer Cloth Doll, Blue Boy, from the Gainsborough painting, blue silk costume, holding hat, in medium size, as Dorothy noted this size would fit better with the collection, the other figures being in her more usual small size, and that he "was a pleasant figure to make, and quite a change... I have not made so young a person for quite a long time", ht. 9 1/2 in.
Estimate $1,500-2,000
