"... the Ladies Love Their Hats!"

Just as the ladies of yesteryear loved their hats, modern doll collectors love their doll pins! After much persuading by some of the members of the RiverCity Figurative Artists' Guild, I have finally tired my hand at creating some doll pins. They are inspired by illustrations from 19th century ladies magazines and represent ladies hats and headresses from various periods. The first of the series shows one of the lacy confections popular among the fashionistas of the 1830s.
