Anonymous Works' Blog is definitely one you should visit if you love folk art. He continually posts such interesting artifacts from history that you will want to be checking daily.  I found his site when I was searching for "1840's dolls".  I emailed and asked if I could feature this large 19th century carved wooden doll and he kindly shared images.  Anonymous Works Website has a lot of wonderful carved folk art pieces as other unique treasures that are interesting to those of inspired by antiques.

Her Royal Treeness.  

That's what I would name her if she were mine.  She retains so much of her "tree-ness" in her finished state.   

Who knows who made this doll?   
A brother for his younger sister, perhaps.  
A girl herself?
