ON HOLD: Grail II (LovelyHouse/DollTi Shin-B)

ON HOLD: Grail II (LovelyHouse/DollTi Shin-B)
Grail is a rare and special doll -- one of the very few Shin-B's (sculpted by LovelyHouse, cast by DollTi) to be sold, and from what the company told me, the very last one ever made.

LovelyHouse was one of the very early BJD companies, and was renowned for their slim, curvy body sculpts and winsome faces -- and fun alternative sets of hands! Grail has magnetic hands and feet (which was a huge innovation at the time!) LovelyHouse went out of production, but DollTi bought their molds and partnered with the sculptor to release a few more dolls, before shutting their doors as well. She's a rare piece of BJD history, and in *beautiful* shape, because she has her default face-up in pristine condition and has never been displayed/played-with (long story, involving a move and never quite getting the chance to find her perfect style.)

She was made in 2010, and I am her first owner. I unfortunately only had lousy indoor lighting from these photos, but she is *not* yellowed -- I can take a sunlight shot with a Volks pureskin doll of the same vintage to show the similar skintone.

She will come with six magnetic hands.

For the doll alone, I'm asking $500.00 plus shipping.

I am also selling the MuseDoll "Waltz of the Flowers" dress (discontinued, comes with shawl) for $100.00.

The carrot mohair wig is available for $40.00.

Her 16mm eyes are Enchanted Doll -- I am *almost certain* that they're #52 (that's what my records show that I purchased in that size), although they look a little darker in photos than on the color chart. I'm also willing to sell them for $50, with the understanding that I am selling them based on the photos here and not guaranteeing that they match the ED chart.

Please contact me at ashbet@gmail.com if you're interested, and have a look through the whole album to see Grail in some different "looks" -- I need to sell ASAP because I'm dealing with major medical bills for my daughter, so while I can take layaway, I do need a significant down payment, and it will not be refundable.

Thanks so much, and best wishes!

ETA: On layaway for a lovely friend from Flickr! Thank you!
