Antique Papier Mache Dolls

Alicia's flirty-eyed papier mache reminded me
of two dolls I saw at the Richard Wright auction last October.
Above is a wonderful glass-eyed papier mache doll.

I love the way that patina and wear
create an interesting surface on these old dolls.

Her apron is divine.

Look at the great shoes!

This doll below has side glancing glass eyes:

Here are some additional pictures of her details:

And last but not least, here is a Voit doll owned by Edyth O'Neill.

  1. these are so wonderful !!
    i especially love the girl at the top and her clothes.
    i was wondering if anyone has a tutorial on how to paint ( paper mache style ) a doll to look antique with the tiny cracks and discoloration that comes with time ?

  2. These dolls are divine! I adore the blush on the cheeks of the Voit doll.
