Annie, 18" Hand Carved, English Wooden Queen Anne Style Doll........................................SOLD

For those who have been asking what I have been up to, here she is!  Meet Annie.  She is 18" tall and hand carved with Basswood that grows here on our 200 acres.  She has such great patina and I can't resist showing you her body as well while I was working on her.  Annie is so much nicer in person but I have put a lot of photos on here for you to see.  She has Antique black glass eyes and such a sweet little mouth and some attitude!  Her cap is amazing.  The stitches are so tiny and the pieces that I used to make it are from the mid 1700's.  She has a lovely petticoat with again very tiny hand stitches and a bum roll that gives her that nice wide hip area so that her dress sits well on her hips.  Those tiny ruffles on her cap and neck area are all hand stitched with the tiniest of stitches.  I hope she gets a good home.
I hope you enjoy seeing her.  If you have questions or would like more photos just email me:




I must post the following lovely email that I just received:
Annie arrived safely to her new home in New Jersey.  I think she has just the right amount of attitude to fit in here : - ).
You are so special.  I don't know if you are reincarnated or what, but you really feel the dolls.  I know I see it all the time on your site about the pictures not capturing the true essence of the dolls.  I generally think - they look great to me...what could be better?  Well, as I've seen in many of the comments, the doll in person is better - truly unbelievable.  Annie is so great to hold and everything about her is perfect.  The bonnet, as you said is amazing - are your eyes bionic?  I've only seen work like this in antique items.   I love Annie - she has touched my heart.  She has, as you said attitude, but I can see an amazingly quick wit and a very sincere soul in her face. My boyfriend who does his best to understand my antique dolls noted that she looks very "Colonial", which is right on track!  I will send you some photos once I've gathered some gifts for her.  I want to know if you think they are suitable and appropriate.  On my wish list are....a doll like  9" Sugar or Honey, a small sliver sister baby and my favorite of your dolls (next to Annie) - Beatrice - listed in 2011.
With Sincere Thanks
