23" Maudie, Fully Jointed, Hand Carved Queen Anne Doll With Removable clothing.............................SOLD

23" Maudie
I shall post lots of photos for you to see.  All of her clothing is removable so if you like to sew this would be a perfect doll to add more to her trousseau..
Maudie is fully jointed and all hand carved.  Her eyes are antique black glass.
She is wearing very early paisley fabrics.  I LOVE paisley.  These two really compliment each other. Under her skirt she has a very full fine wool petticoat.  Her early cotton chemise is just poking out of her jacket.  She comes with her sewing roll of course too.
If you have questions or would like more photos just email me:

23" Fully Jointed, Hand Carved Queen Anne Wooden Doll.....Meet Jocelyn....................SOLD

I am thrilled to show you Jocelyn. This doll is HUGE and has been moved from my studio to my dining room and for a while in a big drawer!  I finally finished her off as she really needs a home other than a drawer. LOL.
Her patina is really wonderful.  She is the type of Queen Anne Doll that I often refer to as Egg Head dolls, for obvious reasons.  This style was more from the very late 1700's and into the early 1800's.  I love these big dolls with the very simple looking faces.  They have character all on their own.
I have made Jocelyn with all fully removable clothing and a few accessories.

Here is a list of all that comes with Jocelyn:
Shoes
Stockings 
Cotton antique petticoat
Wool antique petticoat 
Cotton stripe homespun skirt (this fabric is vintage but wonderful colours so I used it)
Pair of antique linen crewel pockets 
Sewing roll made of antique early cottons
Antique needle point bag and sewing ball that I made her 
Antique sampler apron with initials M B so perhaps her name should change to?? Mary Beth??
Antique chemise with tiny button closure. 
Very early madder Caraco jacket
Lace cap
Straw bonnet
Necklace made of antique glass beads. 
Scroll through the photos and if you have questions or would like more photos just email me:

Enjoy!

Her sewing roll.....

Linen/crewel pockets

Jocelyn's sewing roll.......

Jocelyn has an antique sampler made into an apron.  I see the initials MB so perhaps her name should be Mary Beth??
I leave it up to you!

18" Margie is a Hand Carved, Fully Jointed Wooden Queen Anne Style Doll circa 1790..................SOLD

SOLD

Meet Margie!
I just added some more photos of Margie with her antique collar off (which is how I prefer her).  She claims she is not a fancy doll at all.
She is 18" tall and fully jointed she sits very well as you see below.
Margie is dressed from head to toe in early cottons that really do suit her well.  I have not made of of these types of Queen Anne dolls for a long time, as someone brought to my attention.  I really do love them and I love dressing them.  They have a simple yet charming look to them and grouped together they all look to me like they hold secrets.
Her dress is beautifully finished and laces up the back to the antique piece at the neck could be removed.  I have it just pinned there right now so the new owner can advise me if it is to remain or not.  Either way she looks good.  She has a lovely pinball hanging from her arm as well and that can stay with her too.
Margie is SOLD.
