Adelaide in Lavender





This small doll is one I call Adelaide because of her hairstyle. My little Adelaide dolls are named after Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, Queen consort of the United Kingdom and Queen Consort of Hanover. She was of German birth in 1792. She lived until 1849.

She was known for her fancy hairstyles of actual hair in designs.

By small, she measures 11 inches tall from the top of her hairpiece to the bottom of her feet.

This Adelaide now resides in Maryland.

Cloth Queen Anne Doll ~ "C" ~ SOLD






This small cloth doll in the Queen Anne tradition is dressed in her boudoir clothing which includes her shift, her stays and her pockets.

Underwear as we know it was not yet invented. Women merely wore many petticoats. Even pantaloons and/or pantalets were not yet invented; not until the 1860's. The Queen Anne era I represent with my dolls is the 1700's.

The doll is 12 inches tall.

As seen in one of the photos, she can put her hands into her little pockets. Pockets were worn underneath their gowns and could be accessed via slits in garments. She kept her small necessaries with her throughout the day.

I have deemed this doll Queen Anne C, because I make others like her. Each one is individual nonetheless.

Dolly ~ A Primitive Painting on A Very Old Board ~ SOLD

Dolly is a primitive painting on wood, of a doll, that I painted when we lived in southern, Ohio in an 1830's dear little Federal styled farmhouse in a small town.

When the roof was being restored, bits of the early wood was tossed out and from that stash I found this little misshapen, hunky piece of wood and did a primitive doll painting onto it. It has been with me for many years, but now it is time to find it a new home.

11.5 inches tall X 11 inches wide ~
