Tea for two?

Mint Memories is the first in the Victorian Tea Collection from 1999, and also the first porcelain Barbie to have a swivel head. She has a lovely auburn updo with curls, and a mint green satin gown, complete with bustle, and lots of ribbon, lace and pearl trimming. My favorite accent on this dress is the tiny cameo sewn on the front. See a detailed photo here.

The original doll included a tea cup with 22 karat gold paint, but my doll is an estate find, and she didn't include the original cup. She's got a new Rement tea cup instead. Just lovely!
