Polly Ann, A 1795 Stump Doll Reproduction ~ SOLD

Polly Ann is a stump doll like one from 1795 that was owned by the Wylie family of Connecticut. I believe that doll now resides in Rhode Island.

My Polly Ann was created for a client and is therefore SOLD. She is dressed entirely in antique silks and laces. I have altered aspects of the original design in using embroidery for her face, rather than ink, and in adding legs to her whereas the original has no legs.

Stump dolls are not named as such due to coming from a tree, but because they are stumpy in bodily design.
