Clonette doll – styled by Little Big Bell.

Clonette-doll-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell This sweet little Clonette doll was sent to me a while back, and I’ve been meaning to style it up. I haven’t had a chance until now.

So what are Clonette dolls? They originated in Ghana during the colonial era and were apparently the first industrially produced dolls in Africa.

They were inspired by traditional woven dolls made from wood and fabric. Clonette-doll-with-red-shoes-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell They are usually produced as brightly coloured dolls from recycled plastic, so the one I received was extra special as it was made from porcelain.

This porcelain version has been made by Dutch sisters Lammers & Lammers.

I placed a pink sweet pea, my favourite flower, where her little heart was. Clonette-doll-styled-and-photo-by-Little-Big-Bell She was then placed into a beautiful floral garden of pastel hues.

Love her golden bunny and that blue and white porcelain pigeon on her head. Lammers-and-Lammers-Clonette-doll-styled-and-photographed-by-Little-Big-Bell Sweet shiny red shoes.
