There is no doll like a Georgian Wooden that is capable of adding such a large degree of grace and warmth to a room. This elegant lady, circa 1760, is no exception.
Classic details of this finely carved and gessoed "Queen Anne" include inset handmade glass eyes surrounded by stippled brows and lashes, a noble nose, blushed cheeks - all crowned by a wonderful wig of rich brown mohair.
We would say restoration-wise, the doll has been cleaned and a finish has been applied to protect the painted details of her face and body. One can expect this treatment on a nearly three-hundred year old wooden toy.
This wonderful doll's wooden body features cloth tab attachment of the arms at the shoulders, and articulation of the legs at the hips and knees.
We love the lines and general femininity of this doll's elegant gown of silk brocade. With its panniers, applied metal discs and silver metallic trimmings, it was designed to shimmer in a candlelit room, and along with this doll's sparkling eyes, we are sure the effect was intoxicating.
An early wooden doll of this caliber is not for everyone. This fine doll has had centuries to craft a degree of patience, so she is willing to wait for a deserving caretaker.

Measures: 17 1/2" tall, 18 1/2" overall

On a stuffed cloth body that features replaced (but nicely detailed) modern china arms , and legs that wear brown painted boots, this lady's ensemble is a dream. 1860s sensibilities dictate the fashion here.

Like his companion above, a nineteenth-century, Italian, carved wood marionette, this handsome young gentleman depicts a commedia del' arte figure. Standing an impressive thirty six inches tall, he is jointed in all the right places to enable very fluid movements. The carving details upon his expressive face are remarkable – the mask and other details are expertly done, and the glass eyes – very realistic in blown glass with brown irises.
This fellow, who has a body composed of stuffed cotton and carved wood components, with screw eyes remaining here and there that used to give strings an anchoring point, wears a four-piece cotton costume with green wool rope as decoration. Painted stockings and carved wood shoes complete the look.
So much artful expression – and great for display in the right shop or home.
