13.5 inch Primative Wooden

This doll was taken from several examples of primitive so called bed post dolls.  Made by family members or a local craftsman, they have a wonderful naive charm that is irresistible . So I had to make some. this doll is wearing a corset and slip and a lovely lavender  batiste Empire style dress her bonnet is a cream batiste. She is the picture of spring with her small basket .  If she were the real thing she would date from around 1800 or so.  So simple but so much detail these dolls are a contradiction to the words simple or naive and, primitive, as their construction is not easily duplicated . This doll is perfectly aged to have the appearance of a 200+ year old doll and would be a great addition to any collection. Thanks for looking !  Don’t forget a chair as she does bend at the hips and knees.
