Miss Columbia

Miss Columbia is one of the most challenging and my all time favorite doll.
One of our dear doll friends, and Doll Artist, Conni Tognoli, was asked to re-create the famous Columbian doll created at 1900 by Emma Adams.
This famed doll circumvented the globe to raise funds for Childrens Chairities in the years 1900-1902. Her first visit was to San Diego's Hotel Del Coronado. A trunk and journal accompanied her in her travels.
The original Miss Columbia is on display at the Wenham Museum, Wenham, Massachusetts.
