19th Century Ice Skaters Series
Special Edition 16"  Sonja #11/100
(from the Weekend at Nana's edition)
Handpainted/Signed by Helen Kish

This listing is for  one of the wonderful classic Kish 19th Century Ice Skaters Special Edition, dated 1999.  The skater in this listing is Sonja, a 16" beauty,  with lush blonde with
mohair curls and beautiful HK enhanced features. 

The  Skaters series  was originally released in 1998.  As Kish was unable to get the materials for all of the sets of clothing planned, the edition number was reduced.  The following year..1999, Kish rereleased them in a special edition of only 100 dolls..and only available from a few select dealers.   This edition was called the Weekend at Nana's editon..and it included several other outfits along with the skating ensembles..

    The painting on the dolls in this series were enhanced  HK, and she signed and numbered each of them.  This particular Sonja is one of that special edition series, tho she does not come with the auxiliary outfits.   Just LOOK at the coloring of her face!  She is signed by Helen Kish as a SPECIAL and numbered 11/100 on her back.

Sonja is dressed in a period style long black and gray pinstriped dress with white collar. . . . over which she wears a wonderful cranberry colored corduroy coat complete with attached capelet.  Black boots, a flannel long john like onesie,  fur cap and of course, her rustic ice skates complete her skating ensemble. 
Sonja is in wondeful condition.. her hair is a bit the victim of "hat head", as I doubt she has had her hat off very often in her 14 years of life!  I am sure it can be refreshed if desired, tho I think it looks great now. 

Sonja will come in her original box which is marked as a special edition doll..  I am not her original owner, and I did not get her COA when I purchased her.. 

Sonja is a wonderful addition to any Kish collection..  This set is one of
my very favorites and so very special!

This doll comes from a smoke and pet free home.
