A Peddler Doll
The Dolls of European Children in the Middle Ages were largely made out of linen, wood or wool. Consequently, with the unfavorable climate , these primitive toys hardly could survive.
In the wealthier homes, however, a child might have owned a doll carved out of alabaster, while a peasant child would play with a doll made out of rags.
Dolls made of clay generally had the best odds of surviving the centuries, some dolls depicted fancy court ladies in all their finery
Others were knights on horseback, mythical beasts and ladies with falcons perched on their wrists.
