French Masked Rosalinde
This is a French Rosalinde. She appears in the book, "Magic & Romance of Art Dolls." Because Rosalindes' costumes were made of silk, it is very rare to find them in their original costumes. As is the case with this particular one, her silk costume is gone. It used to be a shocking pink (you can see bits of it in her closeup). However, the lace armlets, silk velvet headdress, with the attached faux pearls, underskirts, stockings, as well as a chamois sole of her silk shoes are all that remains.
