9" Hortense is inspired by antique cloth dolls. Her painted face is finished with pen and ink and colored pencils. Her tea dyed pantalets and slip are trimmed with lace. She wears a dress and bonnet with a print of small flowers. Tied at her
waist is a handmade pocket in which she keeps her treasures. Her gold painted boots have brown trim.
She is named for my ancestor Hortense Staples, born in 1855.
