13 3/4" Wilma Higgs, My Newest Hand Carved Wooden Doll Circa 1680.............SOLD

I am so thrilled to show you Wilma Higgs now that she is all finished.  She is just a bit under 14" tall and all hand carved and jointed.  I have posted lots of photos of Wilma here for you to see.  I could not be more pleased with this doll.  She has wonderful patina and is dressed in some amazing antique silk.  These photos do not do her justice at all but if you like the photos, you will LOVE the doll.
She has little silk shoes as well of course and a simple hand stitched petticoat.
You will see that she asked for a handmade pinball to hang from her waist as well so she has one.
the ruffles are her neck and on her sleeveletts are antique and so tiny and are all hand stitched as well.
If you have questions or would like more photos just email me:
Wilma Higgs is SOLD.

These are Wilma's sweet little silk shoes



Jointed at the hips and knees. Wilma sits well.

Must share:

9 1/2" William Higgs 1680's Style Wooden Doll with Swivel Head.............SOLD

She is stunning, all dressed in her early embroidered silk gown.
I hope to have photos on here later today of her all finished.  I have put a couple photos of her face while I was working on her so you can see her lovely face and patina.

If you wish to see her prior and want some quick photos just email me:

The silk that I used for her gown is so early and has wonderful embroidery on it which I have centered and used on her bodice and sleeves as well.



A note from the happy lady that just received this little Higgs:
Hi Kathy,

I love her so much!  I'm so thrilled to be able to add one of your William Higgs dolls to my collection.  A million thank you's for making such amazing dolls!
