This model is dedicated to my beloved friend Elaine Kevin, owner and artist at BrierRose, who has created for me the beautiful Betsy Ross porcelain doll. This limited edition doll can only be purchased through Giulia Punti Antichi, together with the kit. Kit and doll cannot be sold separately: we wouldn’t want to separate Betsy Ross from her flag! 

Pins, magnets and chatelaine made by Roberta Dazzini, available at Giulia Punti Antichi.
