New from Boxpleat Fashions "Frankly, Ms. Marshall we were surprised to hear that you had been cast as Lucrezia Borgia. I mean, isn't she supposed to be the epitome of the wicked woman? Sounds more like a role for Ms. Lord."

"She does have that reputation," said Gene with a smile. "But this film shows a different side of her personality. Lucrezia loved her second husband very much, despite the fact that he was chosen by her powerful family as a chiefly political marriage partner.

When the political promise of Alfonso's family don't materialize, her father starts making plans for her third marriage. When she refuses to divorce Alfonso, he is mysteriously attacked and seriously wounded. Lucrezia tends his wounds, and even prepares his food so her family can't poison him."

"He dies in the end, doesn't he?"

"Well, yes. The poor man is strangled by her brother...her family didn't get their reputation for nothing!"

Lucrezia Borgia

"Lucrezia" is shown on "She'd Rather Dance."
Doll is included in auction and is in mint condition.

The costume can be removed but is VERY difficult to replace. It is easily damaged, due to the light nature of the chemise, the complicated lacing, etc. If you are the winning bidder, you may send a different doll to us to be dressed in this costume.

This ensemble is an original hand crafted one of a kind.
