Item Description

The Gibson Girl. Attractive. Intelligent. Poised. Graceful.  And always elegantly dressed.  She set a new fashion trend at the turn of the century...and became a national ideal as the epitome of femininity and grace.  Mothers and daughters would dress to complement each other - and would wear their Sunday finest to stroll or "Promenade" together.

The beautiful pair of Gibson Girls dolls brings to life the fashion and splendor of the turn-of-the-century America.  Authentic to the traditions of the day, mother wears a stunning lavendar jacquard dress complete with a bustle. Her graceftul bodice of ivory charmeuse has a high collar trimmed with lace.  Her puffed sleeves are generously overlaid with ivory lace and accented with pink bows and faux pearls.

And her daughter is equally enchanting! Dressed in pink sating with puffed sleeves trimmed in lace.  Panalets of matching pink satin. 

Promenade perfectly captures the beauty and prade of a fashionable Gibson Girl mother and daughter enjoying a precious moment together.

Comes with doll stands and Certificate of Authenticity

Mother stands 23" tall
