This two doll set depicts Hester Prynne and her daughter Pearl from The Scarlet Letter, by Nathaniel Hawthorne. An enduring piece of American literature, rich in both story and symbolism, The Scarlet Letter is the basis for Wendy Lawton's first edition in the Classic Literature 1996 Collection of art dolls. Hester Prynne is dressed in traditional Puritan garb, but, if you'll look closely, her collar, cuffs, cap and apron have been carefully embellished with the meticulous handwork, Hester's letter A, defiantly worked in a combination of scarlet and gold, is the only color evident against the brooding shades of her clothinbg. Her dark eyes glint near-black against her lustrous dark hair. Little innocent Pearly, lovingly dressed in shades of scarlet and gold, with her leading strings still evident, harks back to an earlier day. Her old-fashioned gown is heavily ornamented with Hester's painstaking handwork. Pearl's dark brown hair and brown eyes sparkle with light.

Hester Prynne is a porcelain and wood 16 inch jointed doll. Pearl is an all porcelain 12 inch doll. The set was produced in an edition of only 250.
