Anyone heard of China Doll?

I got a China Doll at an african violet show about nine or ten years ago and haven't heard of it from anyone - not on violet forums, ebay, or different vendors. For the first few years it was just a so-so plant, but it just gets better with time. Now I can't remember the last time it was without blooms (and lots of them). Just wondering if anyone else has one??

It's an old Irene Fredette variety and is in the FC2 computer program database.

China Doll (I. Fredette) Double rose-pink. Variegated dark green, plain. Standard

I'd love to have a couple of leaves if you'd like to do a trade. I love the Fredette varieties

Best Wishes,

I looked at FC2 for I.Fredetta and found many AV's I would like to add to my collection. What grower has the best or most of these plants for sale. Thanks

I'm up for a trade. I'm in Arizona, so we'll have to do it before it gets too hot here, but not too cold in other parts of the's a small window some years, but I've done it before. The variegation on the edges of the leaves is very thin but it's the same color pink as the blooms. Pretty.
