16" Camille Higgs, a Circa 1680's Hand Carved English Wooden Doll.................SOLD

I am so thrilled to share with you, Camilla Higgs.  She is just  over 16" tall and fully jointed.  She is hand carved by me from wood that grows here on our 200 acres.  She is made from Basswood and is jointed and the hips and knees and has had carved wooden hands and lower arms and Linen upper arms just as the old dolls of her type did.  She is wearing kid leather fingerless mittens.  Her petticoat is simple but made from really early cotton with wonderful patina.  Camilla's gown is very special and made from early 1700's silk that is a wonderful shade of blue and has a tiny bit of pink, yellow and some great tarnished silver threads to  the pattern as die for!  Her slippers are silk of course.
Her cap is made from some amazing early lace that I bought from the UK a long while back. Her head swivels so she can be posed.  She has attitude!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention her Chatelaine with the hand made antique silk pinball that I specially made for her!
If you would like more photos or have questions just email me:

This is when I was working on her......


Great patina!

This photo is very true to the colouring of her Antique silk gown

She loves her Chatelaine and pinball........

I hope you have enjoyed seeing all these photos of Camille Higgs.
Camille Higgs is SOLD
