Zawieruszynski Originals porcelain & vinyl dolls are the creation of Zofia and Henry Zawieruszynski. All of the Zawieruszynski dolls are handmade in the USA. All have human hair, Masterpiece eyes and hand-painted faces. They are dressed in the finest silk, wool or cotton outfits. With the few porcelain exceptions where the shoes or boots are actually porcelain, the dolls are wearing real leather shoes or boots. Each doll is signed by the artists and have a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Zofia and Henry were born in Poland. Zofia was educated at various art schools to broaden her talents in sculpting, costume design, anatomy and painting. Henry completed similar schools studying painting, drawing, sculpture and ceramics. Later they met and married. Together they opened a design business. Happily, Zofia and Henry moved to America in 1988 and settled in Minnesota where now they focuses their attention on sculpting and creating limited edition dolls.
