Miss Erma Higgs!!


Here we have the lovely Miss Erma Higgs. She measures about 20" tall and is fully jointed and hand carved from basswood. She is in the style of the early William Higgs dolls from about 1680.
I am so pleased with how she turned out and I hope she gets a good home. Her clothes are made of early linen and wool overshot fabric that I have been saving for just the right Queen Anne doll. Lucky Erma!
She has an antique cotton petticoat and bum-roll so her dress, which is longer in the back than in the front, stands out nicely on her wooden hips! Her pocket, which I know should be on this inside of her skirt, is made of a morsel of very old crewel work that I had here. Erma has decided to wear her pocket on the outside of her dress just to show it off. You could un-tie it and slip it up under her skirt, but what fun would that be!
She sits or stands well.
If you would like more photos of Erma or any of her younger sisters that are here and complete and ready for sale, just email me at and I will be happy to answer any questions or send more photos of any of the completed dolls that I have at the moment.
Erma is so much more lovely in person than in these photos.
