Old Pretenders...fabulous!!!

We based this very unique doll on a antique example of a very rare century wooden.

These dolls have carved faces with inset dark glass eyes and occasionally painted eyes. The eyelash and brows were detailed with dots. The large black spots on the faces emulate “beauty spots” which were fake moles that women applied to their skin – the height of fashion at the times. They had cloth upper arms too.

A jointed body and carved face decorated with stylized eyebrows and brightly rouged cheeks characterize the "Queen Anne" style dolls.
