Lyda Salmonowa, Ballerina

I love to look at old photos, and it seems they're always reminding me of boudoir dolls. This postcard of Lyda Salmonowa instantly made me think of a wax half doll I have. So, here they are together.


  1. This ballerina half doll looks so elegant and dainty. What are her legs made out of? Are her stockings made from metallic thread?

  2. Her legs are wax covered with metallic lace and thread.
