Primitive Santos Cage Doll, Tan with Flaming Heart on Chest
She is articulated at the shoulders and elbows. Although she is articulated, please note that all joints do not always move symmetrically. One elbow may be stiffer than the other, for example. This is common, as it is with any hand made object, particularly when created in a vintage style.
This lady has shiny, inlaid eyes that have been painted and then set in to place.
The cage's base measures approx. 8.5" in diameter.
Fashioned after the antique European Santos, they are carefully hand crafted. To make the hand painted doll unique, the craftsmen distress it; picking & choosing from a range of faux aging techniques. Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when being 'antiqued'. This is character, and not a flaw. Read more about this in our picture gallery below.
(Make sure to check our other Santos (Cage) Dolls, too!)
All the above are stock pictures from our studio collection. This sale is for the doll only; any other items potentially present in our picture(s) are not included. The various Santos crowns she is wearing in the pictures can be purchased separately in our store. Your doll will be very, very similar to the lady shown. Please keep in mind that the arm motion-/posture-capacity of your doll may differ from (i.e. be more, less, different, or similar to that of) the doll depicted in these pictures.
Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when being ‘antiqued’. This is character, and not a flaw. And since the dolls are crafted to appear antique in nature, they may include some of the following: distressed or chipped paint, minor splits in wood, some cracks, variations in paint shade, variations in joint resistance, exposed wood in joints, and other artistic process imperfections, yielding different results on every doll. And, although all dolls of a same model are remarkably close in appearance, there may be signs of aging that are not identical to her ’sisters’. Additionally, dolls are made by various craftsmen and receive different ‘personal touches’… It’s the beauty of artistic hand made versus robotic machine made.
