Penny Wooden Doll

Out of Stock until further notice

As might be assumed from the name, these dolls were relatively inexpensive during the 19th century. This sample has jointed arms and legs which use elastic for the jointing. The original probably used simple thread but the use of elastic here provides a bit of a margin against the breaking of the jointing thread -- it would be a tragedy for the arm or leg to come off!! The pattern is open to give you some idea of what they look like. The dressed version at the top also illustrates a principle used in dressing dolls during this time period, that is, if a doll had legs, it had drawers. The lower edge of the drawers can just be seen below the lower hem of the dress. The Penny Wooden dolls are available in two forms:
Doll Only $10.00
Doll and Kit $14.45

This latter kit comes complete with doll, fabric, and patterns. You add needle, thread, and time.
