The dolls presented here are part of the enormous project I spent the last 6 months on . I am honored to have them represented in a permanent collection which includes the very finest examples of English wooden and William and Mary period dolls furniture and other miniature artifacts and objects know to exist. These small dolls ranging in size from 2 inches to 8 inches tall have been a joy to create. I worked closely with my client who has three of the most original and historically important example of 17 th and 18th century “Baby Houses” or know to us today as doll houses. These dolls exhibited along with the collection mentioned above at the Concord Museum in Concord Massachusetts the Exhibit called “the Art and Mystery of the Doll house” exhibited from October 14th to January 16th 2016 .

Hello, After a long unavoidable absence I have made a new doll to begin 2014.  She is wearing a lovely gown of  18th century silk brocade tan and deep green. The stomacher and her petticoat are the same deep green silk satin.Her wonderful RED hair is not human hair as I usually do but because I wanted to make a doll with that red red hair I used mohair. I have also added a picture of her shoes made from the same silk satin with leather soles . the trim is the only modern thing added here but it was in scale and a perfect match to the simple but elegant dress. I have also added a picture f Lady Nora with one of my Chippendale side chairs it is made from curly maple wood and has a lovely  18th century piece of rose colored silk embroidered fabric for the seat cushion.  Please call for more information  regarding prices.
