Clare Higgs is finished now.............and going to live in Russia.

SOLD

I managed to get Clare Higgs finished and some photos taken so you can see her. She is now available for sale.
Clare is 18" tall and fully jointed.  She is dressed in some very early hand woven wool paisley and has her matching pocket on too (I am aware that paisley is not early enough for these 1680 style dolls but I love paisley and perhaps she could have been re-dressed much later since original clothes were likely to have deteriorated in 300 years).  She is wearing her pocket on the outside so you can see it. Her clothes are all made of antique fabrics and hand stitched from top to bottom.  Her hair is sparse and and her cap is made from a wonderful antique piece that I had here for a while just waiting for the perfect doll.  Clare is it!  She will still get her shoes made as well, maybe even today!
She is totally hand carved from basswood that grows on our 200 acres here in the North. 
Clare is now looking for a home and if you would like more photos of her or her great body or more information, just email me  toysintheattic@sympatico.ca

Now, she has character, AND ATTITUDE! There'd be no messing with Miss Higgs I'd say!
She's so lovely!
