Papier Mache Doll 1858 by Gail Wilson
Louisa and Her Greiner Doll, 2009


I have included the photo of my first 9" molded papier mache doll, Louisa, who started the many dolls I have made from this favorite mold (my own original). She is still my favorite and is now on edition 4 to prove it. Following Louisa, there were others: Elizabeth, the Christmas Girl, Kindred Spirits (UFDC), Annabelle, three dolls from the Secret Garden (UFDC), and last was the 1950's Doll - A Self Portrait of Me in First Grade (1956), also for UFDC. This last doll came out with Covid and her companion was never made due to conventions being canceled. But now I am taking pre-orders for a version of this doll which was going to be a little girl from about the 1850's. I will be doing two sisters (or companions) inspired by Laura and Mary Ingalls from Little House on the Prairie. One will have brown hair and one blonde with complementary outfits and different added accessories. Each doll will be $795 or if you order both each will be $695. Whichever you order, payments will be in 3 installments, shown in parentheses. Dolls will be ready prior to the holidays.

My newest nursery rhyme characters are the well known Jack and Jill. The two-doll set comes on a wooden stand and both are holding a tiny red pail. The inspiration for their clothing was taken from paintings by Kate Greenaway with most of the fabrics and trims specially hand dyed here in my workshop to get the look. Like all the other dolls in this Tiny Doll Series, these too are 3.5" tall. This set, unlike the others, will be limited in number to 24 total.

Because the set has two dolls, I am offering two ways to order:
• Order the Jack and Jill Set with stand for $435. If ordered now, a $145 deposit will be taken with the balance charged at shipping. Add to Cart


Shown at left is my new Valentine's Tiny Doll all in pinks (including her hat which looks red in the photo). Like all the other holiday themed Tinies, she is 3.5" tall, or 4.5" to tip of hat. She too was inspired by vintage Valentines images. Her fabric was specially printed here in house to achieve the just-right look. All of her silk ribbons, the delicate lace at her collar and even her buttons are hand dyed to perfection. She holds a tiny garland of wooden hearts painted pink and her slippers are trimmed with tiny balls at the toes. She comes with her stand.

This doll was my Valentines Doll for 2022. Here is her story: I was inspired to make one of my Tiny Dolls (3.5" tall) in the style of illustrations on old fashioned Valentines. Her party hat is trimmed with a ruffled ribbon and her red silk skirt and cotton tulle overskirt are hand dyed here. She holds a very tiny two layer wooden valentine proclaiming "Be Mine". Included is her stand.

For this tiny doll in the series celebrating holidays, I chose an angel. Over all the years of my dollmaking, angels have always played an important role. This one is the tiniest of all. Like the other Tiny Dolls in the Nursery Rhyme and Fairy Tale Series and the Holiday Series, this angel is 3.5" tall with the same basic look and construction as the very first one (Little Red Riding Hood) with posable arms and legs on a papier mache molded head and body from my own molds. She wears a hand-dyed gown trimmed in tucks and imported lace, undies underneath include a lace trimmed slip and pantalets. Her wings, guilded halo and her banner are all of painted wood. Halo is securely pegged. Her price is $235 including stand. If you prefer, you may order her with a hanging loop in place of the stand.

Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Up stairs and down stairs in his night-gown.
Tapping at the window, crying at the lock,
Are the children in their bed, for it's past ten o'clock?

This one is my version of Wee Willie Winkie, an old Scottish nursery rhyme much longer in its original form first published in 1841 and sung as a lullaby. My Wee Willie Winkie is the same 3.5" as the other dolls in the Nursery Rhyme Series which began with Little Red Riding Hood. He has curly toed slippers, a knit and tasseled nightcap and a hand-dyed outfit of a tucked gown over bloused pants and carries a tiny wooden lantern. He comes with the wooden stand. $235.

A sample illustration by Kate Greenaway

Due to so many requests, I will do yet another doll for 2023. I have not worked out all the details, but since I have loved the works of Kate Greenaway, the inspiration will be from the many charming illustrations of children. If you wish to get on the list (sight unseen), you can pre-order here with a one-third deposit. Her price will be the same as the last few. $225 and all pre-orders will include a free stand. All orders up to the limit of 50 dolls will be shipped in time for the holidays. Most of my customers from my old list of 50 who got one each year have already gotten on the list, but there are still spaces. As of September 25, there is 1 space left for pre-Christmas delivery.

New 12 Inch Queen Anne Kit
My older 10" and then the 12" Wooden Queen Anne kits have long been sold out. But people keep asking. Although I can no longer tie up my dwindling time and resources on more labor intensive wooden dolls, I do recognize that most people are mainly interested in the costuming of this iconic doll. To make it possible to provide such a doll kit, the new doll will have a papier mache molded head and torso with separate but not jointed molded legs. To maintain the image of real wooden ones, her arms will be wood which need easy refinement using a simple X-Acto knife. Kits will have simple flat hands with separate fingers or special arms with 3-dimensional thumbs for the adventurous will be available. Arms were traditionally made with cloth upper arms attached to the bodies, so that once the doll is dressed, she (or he) will look exactly like my old all wood body versions. The kit will include all necessary supplies for the doll and her mohair wig, printed patterns for all outfits listed below and a CD with volumes of historical information plus instructions for the doll, clothing and accessories. Dolls may be made female or male.

• Caps, Hats & Other Accessories
• The Many Variations of Gowns
• Undergarments of the Day
• The Gentleman

THIS IS AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE PRE-ORDER OF THIS NEW KIT AVAILABLE BY DECEMBER 2023. The total price will be $178 and you can get on the list for this kit with a 1/3 payment (deposit) of $60. We will schedule a second payment in November and the final balance plus shipping will be charged at shipping in December. 1/3 pymt $60 Add to Cart

Hittys Tea Party Set with 3 Dolls Teaset and Furniture
Set includes 2 regular size Hittys in spindle chairs, Tiny 3" Hitty in high chair, table with tea set and large size braided rug.


I have always through all the years of dollmaking made various versions of dolls having a tea party and one even with only bears. All of the tea parties began from an illustration by Tasha Tudor first discovered in 1980. I even won a prestigious award for the first set which was for my 8" porcelain dolls, then eventually I used the same theme for Hitty.

I sold many Hitty Tea Party sets (see bottom photo at left) until my potter friend who made the tea sets moved away and was no longer in business. I spent a few years trying to find another potter willing to make these sets for me again to no avail. Finally good fortune. My original potter friend came back to this area and set up a new studio.

These are not mass produced pieces made overseas in molds but individually hand thrown on a potter's wheel, with the slight imperfections of hand thrown pottery. Sized just for Hitty (a bit bigger than doll house scale, so another reason sets were impossible to find) with the tea pot about 5/8" tall and cups only 3/8" in their tiny saucers. Since I am a lover and collector of vintage yellow ware, I wanted the same look. Each set has 11 pieces including separate lids for the sugar bowl and tea pot, plus 3 sets of cups and saucers. I send along artist's wax to secure lids and cups and to where ever they will be displayed. $98 per set.
Sorry, due to the numbers of orders and the limited production, these must be pre-ordered and your order will be on the waiting list for the next available batch. We will let you know the wait time. (As of early August, the wait time is mid-late October).

TO ORDER: Click this link if you would like to be on the list for the next batch with a deposit $20. Balance will be charged when we ship. Add to Cart

This is a molded head Izannah Walker made from months of study of a real (and quite wonderful) antique Izannah Walker from the collection of my old friend and well-known dollmaker, R John Wright. This size, 12", is, like the 18", 10", 8" and 6.5" sizes I do, is a reduced version of my own sculpting of that doll. She has the traditional knit over on her molded head and a cloth body with the separately attached thumbs. This first new addition is dressed in wonderful pinks with a windowpane voile apron, lace trimmed and pin-tucked camisole, petticoat and pantalets and real leather 4 button boots.

These dolls were made from reduced versions of my 6.5" Hitty and are 4-3/4" tall and planned to be just right to be Hitty's Little Sister. These began as my souvenir doll for a convention with the idea that later they would be Hittys Little Sister. Like my wooden Hittys, these have hand carved wooden bodies with my molded papier mache heads.
Hittys Little Sister is available with blonde or dark hair, dressed ($248) with color choices or undressed ($215) or ($225) with a set of patterns for a complete wardrobe (includes two dress styles, undies, two pini styles, a cloth bonnet, nightgown set and winter cape).

I carefully selected from my private collection of fabrics (since I no longer keep extra fabrics to sell) just-right sets to make two outfits, undies, two pini styles, a cloth bonnet, nightgown set and winter cap - all look great together as a wardrobe. We have included all laces, buttons and other notions.

The tiny doll for this year, Number 20, again in the 3.5" size, is styled after the costumes of the times which featured leg-of-mutton sleeves and very wide and full brimmed bonnets. Originally, I planned on a subdued palette, but always hampered by available fabrics with a drape good enough for such tiny dolls, I turned down one uninspiring color set after another. Then I happened to notice that the purples, eggplants and greens of the ornamental kales planted in the urns outside my workroom door were just what I was looking for and more importantly was able to obtain the right colors in the right fabrics. The just-right green is used with silk ribbon around her bonnet and her waistband (can't be seen in this photo). Tiny silk ribbon rosettes on her gown and bonnet add the color pop.

Stands Recommended - If a stand is ordered at the same time as a doll, the stand will be 25% off. One stand per doll. $9.50 Add to Cart

NOTE: This is the last tiny doll of the series I began in 2004 and was supposed to be a series of 12. This is Number 20, so a good place to stop. I will continue with my Tiny Nursery Rhyme and Fairy Tale Series and nearly all of the 20 Tinies in this series will continue to be available in the future, just not any new ones. Probably.




In this past year's R John Wright Convention Workshops I did a series of 3 dolls - Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel - for his theme of Fairy Tales. I borrowed my Tiny Dolls basic look and construction for these tiny dolls, adding posable arms and legs to the bodies. She is dressed in her red cape, 2-piece dress and apron with pantalets under where you can see her red shoes peeking out and carries her tiniest of baskets. Includes her stand. Sorry, these are not available as kits. $225 Add to Cart



This well known duo are also available as a set and come with their stands. Like Little Red Riding Hood above, these too have posable arms and legs. Gretel has her day cap and Hansel his own cap and leather-like suspenders. $375 for the pair Add to Cart

The next dolls in the series are Little Bo Peep (with a teeny pulltoy sheep) and Mother Goose (with a teeny pulltoy goose). Available now. Little Bo Peep and Mother Goose each also come with stands.

THE NEXT DOLL IN THE SERIES: For those collecting this series, Little Miss Muffet is now in production. She, of course, comes sitting on her stuffed tuffet eating her curds and whey from a wooden bowl with a hand carved wooden spoon - just her size, which I can tell you is very small. The odious spider, embroidered, is stealthily crawling up the tuffet.
She is $225. Add to Cart

DICK AND JANE READERS - These tiny books began as an accessory to a doll I did for a convention souvenir with a 1950's theme, but are now available as stand alone doll accessories and have delightful tiny reproductions inside from actual Dick and Jane series books. Since I was in first grade in 1956, these very books were part of my own beginnings in reading, so I chose to make these little hand bound books for that reason and inside I tell the history of how these readers came to be the standard for learning to read for many decades. Size is 1-3/4" x 2-1/4" $24 Add to Cart
GinnyPaperDoll NEW
This set was originally used as an accessory for the 1950's theme doll representing me in first grade (1956) that I did for UFDC and now is made its own item and number 3 in my doll size paperdoll series.The Set comes in a tiny gift box (pictured is the cover of the tiny box) with Ginny made as a front and back paperdoll mounted on a thin wood silhouette with a painted wooden base to stand on her own. Tiny envelopes come with them to hold their three outfits which although are meant to be display items with the clothing left uncut, the outfits will fit if cut out. $24 Add to Cart

A TINY BOOK OF FLOWERS taken from the Secret Garden, the beloved book by Frances Hodgson Burnet. This little book (smaller than other books above) was made as an accessory for my series of dolls from the Secret Garden. Book size is 1-3/8" x 1-5/8". $24 Add to Cart

NOTE: Picture is not true to color.


This cat is not new, but such a popular and cute tiny item that I am keeping it here. A perfect accessory for Hitty is this very tiny (1.5" tall) printed cloth cat taken from an antique unsewn cat by the Arnold Printworks Patented 1892. These printed cats and other animals and dolls were very popular for the home sewer who was to sew up and stuff these printed treasures for playthings long ago. GW has reworked the original artwork for this very easy kit or a delightful addition finished for your Hitty.

NEW CHEEK PAINT AND BRUSH SET - The answer to your prayers for perfect cheeks

Use acrylics for all other painting, but use alkyd oils for at least cheeks for better, easier cheeks. If you will be using these paints soon after receipt, the best way to paint cheeks fairly effortlessly is with alkyd oils (fast drying oils). Oils allow you to easily feather out the edges using a dry brush and virtually no paint on your brush. Clean up with turpentine or turp substitute. You can then seal with varnish (recommended is Mod Podge Matte) and antique as usual. Included with the set of three colors in small paint pots (Titanium White, Cadmium Red Deep, and Burnt Sienna) are a concealer brush, a brush point Fantastik Paint Stick for blending or cheeks on tiny dolls, a foam Q-tip, and basic instructions.
