Boo Bear and Me - No. 4238N

My Closest Friend Collection

Size: approx. 14 inches

Artist: Jan Goodyear

Handcrafted under the hallmark of the Edwin M. Knowles China Company - edition ended Dec 31, 1991.

This exquisite porcelain bisque doll, named Evie, is from the Ashton-Drake My Closest Friend collection.

The doll is in new/mint condition - Evie has never been played with. She was only briefly out of the box to have her picture taken. She comes with a doll stand and her teddy bear, Boo, and the original box. Her box has a slight dent in one corner.

The artist, Jan Goodyear, signed the back of the doll's neck; the serial number below the artist's signature is 4238N.

Expert sculpting and fine hand painting bring little Evie's contented expression to life. "I really wanted to duplicate the distinct 'body language' that a child shows when she feels totally secure," says Ms, Goodyear. Evie's slightly shy pose, with toes turned inward, adds additional charm. And the addition of being able to suck her thumb is precious. The hand is posed that way. It can be removed from her mouth if desired. She stands 14" high and has hand set eyes (they do not close). Collectors will note with interest that the head, arms and legs are finished to a velvet-smooth bisque finish and hand-painted in soft, lifelike colors by artist Jan Goodyear.

Evie has blue eyes, blonde hair, a porcelain head, arms and legs, and a fabric body. She is wearing a black with pink floral print jumpsuit, trimmed with white eyelet and pink ribbons. She has a big pink bow in her hair and is carrying her little Boo Bear.

A great find and also makes a great gift!
