AN EARLY TINY WOODEN DOLL

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.

She has her original little outfit, which is lace and purple silk ribbon sashes across her body.  Do ask if you require further information.
