Happy Halloween Everyone!

Every Halloween we love to do something a bit different. Something magical and fun that we love and really enjoy creating.
This year he just happens to have real piranha teeth.
He is a fully articulated wooden marionette clown with a wonderful antique look and patina with one little addition......his toothy smile. He is quite a happy guy and very animated and expressive, especially when he's moving!
Happy Halloween to all and hope everyone enjoys his photos!

A very special doll for our friend Janice.

David's Newest

I rarely ever allow myself to have any artistic license with the dolls we make as that would not make the dolls we create exact to the 17th and 18th century English woodens we love so much. After all, that's what sets Old Pretenders apart as the only 100% historically accurate and correct English wooden dolls made today.
On rare occasion, I just have to make something with a bit of a "hybrid" look to it and I am very pleased so far with my newest male wooden. Hope everyone enjoys his photos portraits so far.
Best Wishes: David
