18th C. Doll-Wooden Queen Anne, reproductions & wa

leejean
I need advice.

This is the chemise and stay for my Paul and David (The Pretenders) doll
Q1: How do I get wrinkles out of the stay?

This is her pair of pockets.
Q2: Is blanket stitch period for 18th century?

This is her cap and neckerchief
Q3: I have a feeling the cap is too big and heavy. How do I go about creating those floating thingy?

Q4: I'm having trouble making a hoop. Anyone has connection to anyone who make hoop for dolls?

Thanks a million for any advice you may have.

18th cent doll pattern [Jul. 19th, 2010|06:20 pm]

I decided with three children under my wing (4 years to 2 months) I was not going to have the time to teach myself to carve, so I am having a doll carved for me by a woodcarver on etsy.
I made up this "pattern" for him to follow
https://dl.dropbox.com/u/1079496/doll/18th%20century%20wooden%20doll.pdf

You may use this pattern to make dolls for yourself or for friends, or have someone carve one for you!

BTW, this etsy seller has already done one wooden doll, so maybe you could ask him. (look under sales, to see it) BTW this is not the seller I went with, I am trying someone else.

I hope to be posting about my doll soon

Happy dollying!

Queen Anne Dolls in Bonhams Auction [May. 21st, 2010|09:42 am]

There are 3 Queen Annes in the upcoming Bonhams auction of "Fine Dolls & Teddy Bears" at http://www.bonhams.com/

The Queen Annes are lots 148-150 & include a 1680 QA dressed as a Carmelite nun. The backstory I read on this doll was that it was a custom of Catholic girls entering religious orders to have a doll dressed in the clothing of their order & send it back to their parents. The other 2 QA dolls include a 1740 in fashionable dress & one that seems to be in a shift or nightgown. If you are interested in later wooden dolls, there seem to be a number of Grodner Tal types in the auction.

There is a group of photos of 18th century dolls & doll clothes at:

http://www.vads.ahds.ac.uk/collections/POCKETS.html

click on "view all images" to see the dolls. This is a British Visual Arts & Design Archive. The dolls are shown as part of an online collection of tie-on pockets in a university. They included dolls who have a tie-on pocket as part of their costume.
The main page for VADS lists their on-line collections. A few are clothing & textile related.

An early automaton [Oct. 5th, 2009|10:01 pm]

Here's a link to a late 16th century Spanish automaton that apparently "walks," plays her instrument and nods her head by way of clockwork under her skirts. Isn't that amazing?
