Isabel of England 1592 was produced from 2002 to 2005 and has been retired. American Girl worked with doll sculptor Helen Kish to create dolls from eight countries, each with her own story adventure. It was a project that pleased Helen Kish, according to the book Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006).
A beautiful sculpt by Helen Kish, painted by a portrait artist who admires dolls, painted eyes = an artistic doll!
The photos are of the actual doll, taken in natural daylight near a window by Nancy Lee.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS WELCOME. Please email me at nancylee@nancyleemoran.com. I will figure out two options for the shipping price.

This vinyl doll has five joints (neck, shoulders, hips).
She can stand by herself.
Her eyes are hazel umber, a delicate mix of many transparent layers. She has fine eyelashes (upper & lower) and feathered eyebrows using varied colors.
The doll has her COA, book, box, my own photo-certificate, as well as extra photos.

The dolls I use were factory painted. I would never repaint a doll that the artist (Helen Kish) had painted herself, such as some of those in the Kish Signature Line. I would not paint one in a limited edition of fewer than 200 (preferably 300 or more). I consult the beautiful book I own: Helen Kish: The Artist and Her Dolls by Louise Fecher (hardcover published in 2006). I am NOT affiliated with any doll company, creator or manufacturer.

I like to paint upon the lovely contours of the doll sculpts, to give each doll her own personality. Just as artists who work on reborn baby dolls do, I used a blush of shadow-colors in creases, dimples, and concave areas of the face and hands. Variations of the cheek color are on the nose and chin, at the skin-corners of the lips, at inner corners of the eyes, along the inner edge of eyelids, in the nostrils, in the collar bone crevice, on the inner fingertips, inside the ears and on earlobes.
None of my paint pigments use lead or cadmium. While I painted this doll only for adult collectors, I wanted the paint to be safe around toddlers and babies.
