19" Antique Queen Anne Wooden Doll ~ Reproduction By Sonia Krause:
Thank you to all of you for your interest in my creations and for your great support.
Here is one of my most recent reproductions,
hope you enjoy viewing this beautiful doll as much as I enjoy creating it!
HER NAME HAD TO BE MARY, England 1720
This is a reproduction of an early english wooden doll . Thanks to the kindness of Susan Dossetter, pictures and past life of this doll was published in an interesting article "Adventures of a Dollhouse Sleuth: Her Name had to be Mary" by Susan Dossetter (Doll News magazine,Volume 60 Number 4 Summer 2011).
The fascinating story of this doll's past inspired me to make a reproduction of Mary. My interpretation of this doll measures 19 inches tall. Hand carved from Linden wood, she has a one-piece carved wooden head and torso, jointed at the hips. Cloth upper arms. Flatt back and squared-off hips . Painted features, antique hand blown glass eyes. Her cloth wig cap is nailed to her head, brown mohair wig. Gesso is covering the wood and she has a wonderful distress look to simulate antiquity.
All of her clothing is removable. The fabrics are antique and also salvage from genuine clothing from the Victorian and Edwardian Era. Most of the material I used to dress Mary, comes from the french market. Her antique wool stockings are color black (no clearly visible in the pics.)
She has been sealed to help protect from dust and fading. All my dolls are signed and dated.
