Early Wooden Dolls to the 1850s… Is beauty truly in the eye of the beholder…
The Old Pretenders
These delightful handcarved 'Queen Anne' style wooden dolls are made by David Chapman & Paul Robins.
English wood dolls of the time are commonly referred to as “Queen Ann” dolls. This may be too general a term as the dolls predate Queen Ann. Eighteen century dolls have different characteristics that can be sorted into three periods:
William and Mary, Queen Ann, and Georgian.
