Mildred is finished ......................and SOLD


I am pleased to introduce you to Mildred. She is fashioned and hand carved from the inspiration of the early 1680's Queen Anne dolls that were carved by William Higgs.

She is just over 20" tall and fully jointed.
Her clothes are all hand sewn and made by me from Antique Silks and Cottons. She has layers of clothing and underclothing. Her fabulous cap is made from a very early baby bonnet that I cut down and made for Mildred. She is also wearing her silk slippers too.
From her waist hangs an embroidered pinball that I made just for her.

14" Hope


Meet Hope! She is 14" tall and dressed in antique silk. She is very sweet and to me looks like a very young lady about 12 or 13, the same age as my daughter.
She is fully jointed and hand carved from basswood that grows on our acreage. Her eyes are antique black glass pupiless eyes and are slightly down-turned. She has dotted eyebrows just as her sisters from 300 years ago. Hope has a sweet little smile.
She is wearing a tiny chatelaine that I made just for her and it is clipped to her hand stitched apron so she can help around the castle!
