• This early 18th C wooden doll is called a Queen Anne doll. Elegant and striking just as she is. She has a solemn quiet presence just as she is presented.
  • As you can imagine, these dolls seldom appear on the market and are quite sought after.
  • The skittle shaped torso is the base of most wooden dolls made in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This example has a flat back with well shaped waist, original turning marks still visible. There are remains of wood pegs where the arms were attached. The almond shaped dark pupiless glass eyes are set well into the wood. Well shaped round head with several nails where hair was once attached.  Remains of original paint over a gesso base, still a touch of red on the cheeks. Slight smile on the closed mouth, quite worn nose.
  • Circa mid to late 1700s. 
  • Custom modern wood stand.
  • Measures 15" tall as shown
  • From the collection of the Strong Museum  in New York.  Collection number on her base.
  • Inventory #D 130
