This is a very rare doll, not only the doll itself, but this is the first time I've seen it in the natural wood! Normally seen is a red with black and gold swirls. This doll is also a large size. Had one last year about the same size which was the first large one I had ever seen. In June of 2009, this doll (the regular smaller size), was listed at $374.99 elsewhere and sold.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: Shipping on this doll will cost up to US$23 or US$13 over the US shipping cost (n/c). Please contact us with intent to buy so that it can be packed, weighed and the extra shipping charges added to the doll BEFORE the purchase is made.
