Advent Dolls

7th December 2018
A little late this weekend, as we were away.
This is one of my most precious dolls. She belonged to Andy's Mum Jean, and used to sit on the whatnot which we now have. She is quite frail in the knee area, and one of her lower legs falls off if I am not careful. She is a peg wooden doll and is probably 19th century. These type of dolls originated in the Netherlands and Germany. Children would be given them unclothed, and then make their clothes from scraps of fabric. Perhaps this little doll needs a dress!

How lovely to have this special doll with family history. I do love all wooden dolls.
