Mint Memories

Mint Memories, originally uploaded by alington.
Tea for two?

Mint Memories is the first in the Victorian Tea Collection from 1999, and also the first porcelain Barbie to have a swivel head. She has a lovely auburn updo with curls, and a mint green satin gown, complete with bustle, and lots of ribbon, lace and pearl trimming. My favorite accent on this dress is the tiny cameo sewn on the front. See a detailed photo here.

The original doll included a tea cup with 22 karat gold paint, but my doll is an estate find, and she didn't include the original cup. She's got a new Rement tea cup instead. Just lovely!

See more photos of her on Flickr.


  1. Batten this lovely down in a nice kitty proof place, dear!

  2. This is an ultra-lovely doll indeed! My friend purchased the same one and I enjoyed the luck to admire this beauty in person. The details and decorations are awesome. The box is pretty as well, it reminded me of some Silver Age art.
