TINY DOLL NO. TWELVE (2013)
AN HISTORICAL COLUMBIAN DOLL

For the 12th doll, I chose one of the classic historic cloth dolls in the spirit of the many dolls made by Emma and Marietta Adams who began making dolls in Oswego, New York in the 1890’s. Many people become confused about the name “Columbian” as it refers to these dolls, but the name came about as a result of a doll, now known as Miss Columbia (now living at the Wenham Museum in Wenham, Massachusetts), who won, in 1893, an award from the Columbian Exposition of the Chicago’s World Fair. Columbia is the female personification of the United States, so her name is quite fitting indeed. My tiny version will painted to look like these well-known cottage industry play dolls and dressed in one of the common styles we still see on well-preserved samples in many museums with a fine batiste pinafore over soft hand-dyed blue dress and painted mary jane shoes. In 3/2021 a bonnet was added.

TINY DOLL NO. THIRTEEN (2014)
AN HISTORICAL BABY DOLL

Out of the list of ideas for this year's doll, I chose one of the classic baby dolls from the very late 1800's into the early 1900's. A bit later in time than my usual, but a baby has always been part of the list and I decided to do it this year in honor of my new, second and probably last, grandchild. The doll has a traditional baby shape and is dressed in a lace trimmed extra fine and aged white batiste bonnet and presenting gown. A sweet baby face on the molded head with molded arms and legs and cloth body between. An optional painted wood cradle with bedding will be available in lieu of or in addtion to a stand.
