Wonderful at Withington's:
A Stockinet Cloth Folk Doll



I drove down to Withington's Auctions in Hillsborough New Hampshire to take pictures of an Izannah doll there, but look who else greeted me when I arrived!  This girl will be auctioned off by Withington's.  Next to Izannahs, one of a kind folk dolls are my favorite type of doll.  


You might expect she's going to have 
a fancy face to match her bonnet....




But no, she has a pencil drawn salt-of-the-earth face.



Here are more details...



 



 
Don't forget to visit Withington's

  1. Oh I love this doll! Her bonnet and dress are inspiring, but the overall effect--her shape and lines--are what make her a work of art.
