18" Higgs style wooden doll......Martha


Here we have Martha, all finished and dressed in her finest!

Her clothes are all hand stitched and made of antique fabrics. Her face and body are carved of basswood and the aging is intentional. She has tiny hand made shoes and painted stockings. She has kind of a 300 year old peasant look to her and wears her pocket outside her dress for you to see. It should be under her skirt but she is showing off!
Her eyes and eyebrows have tiny worn dots above them and Her typical higgs nose is skuffed a bit just as it would be if she were truly 300 years old. She has lovely long carved wooden fingers.
She is looking for home and if you would like more photos of Martha or any of my other woodend available at this time just email me or call me 705 489-1046 if you would like to chat about wooden dolls.
Thanks for looking
