Hitty Loves Oklahoma Charity Auction - Larry Tyckson Hitty Package For Sale
This delicate little 6-1/2 inch Hitty was carved by Larry Tyckson, and she is special because she is fully jointed. Her knees and elbows bend as well as her hips and she has rotating arms. She is indeed tiny, but mighty pretty. Because of her size she does not come with as many dresses as the other dolls we are offering tonight, but she does have a small collection, including a yellow flowered dress with matching yellow pinny, a playful green and multi-colored striped dress, a beautiful bonnet festooned with feathers and a red hand-knit sweater with colorful buttons. She also comes with a settle bench kit, as well as a kit to make her a four poster bed complete with mattress and pillow, a real china tea set with delicate red flowers on it, a teddybear, a toy train, a broom, a sunbonnet girls quilt made from vintage feedsack fabric, fat quarters to make dresses and a shawl to match, a hankie to make a pinafore and a shawl to match, a white apron with "Hittys love to Cook" written on it, a bowl and spoon for mixing cake batter, a wooden mouse and sacks of flour (the coffee table and kitchen table are not included in this sale).This sale is being presented by Hittygirls, an active online doll

This sale is for a Larry Tycksen Hitty and accompanying clothing and accessories.
I would also like to note that Larry Tycksen sadly passed away in 2011, so his very special dolls are only available on the secondary market.
Larry was the son-in-law of the late Sherman Smith, who was also a well known doll carver. Larry admired Sherman's dolls for many years before he started carving dolls himself, and his admiration for Sherman's dolls led him to emulate his father-in-law's style of carving. Both Sherman's and Larry's dolls are well prized.
