CHRISTMAS TREE MARDI GRAS MISCHIEF DOLL
SIGNED BY THE ARTIST IN 2002!
RARE COLLECTABLE

I will do my best to describe these unique and rare little doll to the best of my ability. I have added pictures to help you decide. This auction is for a very rare Mardi Gras Mischief doll which is the creation of artist Connie Born. The doll is signed and dated by the artist. It stands approximately 12" - 14" tall with the Christmas tree material and holly with berries across the top.

Mischief dolls are very much unlike any usual collectable doll such as a barbie or porcelain faced doll. A mischief doll would be barbie after she spent a week on Bourbon Street in New Orleans with no sleep! Each doll is given a unique personality by the buttons that make their faces. Tiny voodoo dolls, crawfish, alligators, Tabasco bottles and other symbols indictive of the area are used as accent pieces. Each one-of-a-kind doll represents New Orleans' richly diverse and fascinating culture. Each doll is fashioned of carefully selected fabrics and topped off with fanciful hair. They are dressed in skirts and necklaces made of Mardi gras beads. Lot's of sass and PLENTY of character the doll is sure to make a conversation piece for years and years to come.
