FATOU, by Annette Himstedt, SIGNED, Barefoot Children Collection, 1987. Box does show shelf wear but is sturdy and intact. Winner of the 1987 Dolls of Excellence Award.
She is a beautiful doll that was modeled after a real girl from Senegal. She has long thick human hair that falls over her shoulders. I changed the ribbons to lace.
She is wearing a sienna colored linen dress and soft white pinafore embellished with possibly Battenburg lace. Underneath her dress she has handmade undergarments. Fatou comes in her original box with a Certificate of Authenticity & all tags. This doll is said to be the most expensive of all the dolls from the Barefoot Children collection.
