Ottore is a 22" kitty doll. He is made from unbleached calico overlaid with black linen. His legs are made from vintage ticking with silk rosettes on his toes.
He has button jointed arms.
His body is decorated with a line of Holbein stitch embroidery in deep red and silver and a line of french knots.
Ottore's face is hand stitched with wool felt eyes, and upright cross stitches in white and in red ombre cotton, shot through with small silver straight stitches. His cheeks have a soft blush to them. Under one eye he has a satin stitched tear in silver thread. On his paws he has my signature satin stitch heart, though this time shot through with an arrow, and a silver star.
Ottore has a removable outfit of dupion silk breeches with elasticated ruffle legs and hand sewn silk rosettes, and a black wool blend felt hat lined in quilters cotton. He has a ruffle made from several layers of soft tulle in black.
All of my dolls are delivered in their own box and have a special tag with their date and name handwritten by me.
Doll approx 22" tall, 30" with hat.
Due to the very fine nature of his clothes, I would recommend this doll have a play value of 5 and up.
The rosettes have an intentional fray to them.
Very gentle hand washing possible, though dry cleaning is recommended for the silk fabrics as some colour run may occur during washing. The hat has a lining of cardboard in the ears and can only be spot cleaned.
