scale Bliss Keyhole House***
I just LOVE the new 1/4" scale Bliss houses that Cynthia Howe is offering on her
site. I finished the Keyhole house and wanted to make some people for it. As it
is a reproduction of an antique house I thought I would challenge myself and
make some 1/4" scale china ladies for it.
These ladies are about 1 1/2" tall and are glaze fired just like the antiques
I am currently taking orders
for the Quarter-scale China ladies.
Note: Each doll is individually sculpted so each will be a bit different.
The dolls are dressed in antique fabrics so each costume is a limited edition as
I only have small amounts of it.
They are $75.00 each plus shipping ($6.50 Priority Mail USA).

information on ordering the dolls.
More dolls coming soon!
