Antique style Googly doll by The Little Hamptons


I've been busy making a new line of Googly dolls based on early antiques, in particular the Einco dolls that had a composition face.  I just love the look of these early Googlies. The dolls are 14 1/2" tall, made from cloth with a paper clay face. I have carefully painted and aged the faces. Their eyes in the mold so are also paper clay and not glass. I make their hair with mohair fabric which is glued and sewn in place. The buuny doll has an outfit made from wool batting, including the head covering and ears.  They are entirely stuffed with cotton and the arms and legs are jointed with disks and split pins.The dolls are signed on the back of the body and come with a signed and dated swing tag. You can contact me via the email link on the right hand side of the page if you would like to buy any of the dolls or you can purchase from my Etsy shop.
They are for sale in my online Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/thelittlehamptons
