Lady Grace, is the souvenir doll from the Round and Round at the Carousel Ball event. Cami head sculpt and Antoinette body, LE300. 1900s inspired lace gown and hat in blush. I think she's a redhead with blue/grey eyes.

Lady Catherine - Antoinette head and body, LE100 (centerpiece #2). Lavender gown and hat, blonde up-do with brown eyes.

Lady Ann - Precarious head on Antoinette body (LE100) (centerpiece #3). Peach gown with blue and black accents. I believe she's a raven-haired doll with green eyes.

Lady Emily (my favorite!) - Daphne head on Antoinette body (LE100) (centerpiece #4). Red, white and navy gown and hat. She's got brunette hair and blue eyes.

The dolls were displayed on Kronemann Carousel horses, which are resin and hand-painted--there are six different horses in this collection.
