AN EARLY TINY WOODEN
Here we have a
really sweet early pegwooden doll, very tiny and dolls
house size. These tiny early pegwoodens are so
sought after these days and look lovely in a little
group in a room setting, or as a companion for a cabinet
sized doll. This little pegwooden is totally
original, not perfect but still a nice little example.
She is jointed at the shoulders and hips. I always
marvel at the skill of the makers to have produced
something with joints which are moveable - although when
they get this age, it`s best to leave them in the
standing position. She still retains her little
red painted shoes, and both arms and both legs are in
place. The gesso on her little head has flaked off
on one side and is not perfect on her face - but do bear
in mind this little doll is only ONE INCH tall! In
"life" one does not see the doll in the same way as
these very close up images (just see her size in
comparison with a doll`s hand) and she is much cuter.
