  1. Love the photo. Who are these dolls? I love the looks of them.

    • Hi Mary!
      The two large dolls riding the rocking horse are actually child size manikins that I made to display the reproduction children’s clothing that I make. They are holding two common linen dolls that I made as examples for the article I wrote for Early American Life about Miss Leslie’s Common Linen Dolls. There is a c. 1850 milliner’s model on the mantle, dressed in cotton net and Dresden paper trim, as well as three of my tiny hand sewn bears and an antique French chalkware Father Christmas.
