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




  1. ¡Guau! Es un muñeco muy peculiar y diferente. No tiene nada que ver con lo que habéis hecho hasta el momento. Os doy mi más sincera enhorabuena por esta pequeña maravilla.

    ¡Un abrazo enorme!

  2. You've truly captured someone special here. Face says it all.

  3. Thank you to everyone who has left such nice compliments on my newest doll. Several people who know me and my wonderful Husband Robert, say that I have captured Robert (see photo below) in this doll and its face. I actually though it looked a bit like him and has his kind and gentle and loving nature when I finished it. I have done this many times in the past, meaning transferred a face from my mind or memory or someone special in my life into a doll so when our follower Mimi sent this comment below,

    "You've truly captured someone special here. Face says it all."

    I though to myself.....She is right and I guess I was right to.

    Thank you!

    Best Wishes; David

  4. This masterpiece is beyond amazing! He is beautiful and so full of personality and kindness. I keep coming back to look at his intricate detail and rich patina. He is one of the most beautiful carved dolls I have ever seen! BRAVO!!
