Antique Wooden Grodnertal Peg Jointed Dolls

I have been expanding my collection of antique wooden peg jointed dolls. They range in size from 11 1/2", 12", 14" and 17" tall and were made in the mid eighteen hundreds. I recently sold my other collection of 11 and found that I am still fascinated by their charm, so individual with their quirky little expressions. I hope you enjoy my photo, have a great day!

A Living Doll!

My Great Granddaughter has arrived! Introducing Miss Lily Ann Allen weighing in at 8 lbs. 6 ozs., 20".
It has been a whirlwind experience with pre-eclampsia, breech position and finally an emergency c-section. We feel so blessed to finally meet her.

Antique Peg Jointed Wooden Dolls

I recently had the great pleasure of purchasing a rare sized 17" peg jointed wooden doll made in the 1850's from a Canadian doll collector. She just arrived and I just love her size and her face is painted with such a sweet expression. She is displayed with another 12" antique peg jointed wooden doll wearing an antique dress I purchased from Jackie Cessna.

A New Queen





















She is 14" tall made of cloth over a wire armature, papier mache head, polymer clay fork style hands and mohair wig. Distressed to look old!
