A very rare very early German wooden

We were asked to dress this extremely rare and very early German wooden. To our knowledge, we have never seen another like this one. Note her very unusual neck pinning which allows her to nod her head up and down. Her body also has a carved stomacher carved right into the dolls torso which we followed when making the bodice. We were very pleased with the way this dolls dress turned out as was her owner.


  1. Wow she is a compelling little lady. I am amazed by the carving, that profile is very lifelike.
    I wonder if she was carved in a likeness to someone. Love the outfit and headwear. She looks very pleased with her new outfit.

  2. La Coiffe est dite à La Fontange d"une des maitresse de Louis XV.
