Tudor Doll

English, 1575-1625

Treen. Wow! I exclaimed when I saw this. Extremely rare Tudor doll - very few toys were made in this period as children were trained to become adults as soon as possible. Home-made by a non-professional carver - a loving Dad perhaps - with ruffed collar and "tonsure" haircut. Beautifully worn aged surface: the lighter color of the face shows how much the girl loved stroking it. Very good condition with tiny age-losses.
