Antiques Week in New Hampshire

IMG_4959

Lovely large c. 1840’s papier-mache doll that I brought home from New Hampshire. She has a child’s pocket tied around her waist and came with a late 18th century child’s chair with it’s original splint seat.

Last week I got to do something that I’ve been wanting to do for over 20 years!  We drove up to New Hampshire for Antiques Week and a visit to Strawbery Banke museum. I’m sure you aren’t surprised that I came back a few things for the dolls, including two new friends. 🙂

  1. […] * If you’d like to see and read about the dolls and doll related antiques I found in NH click here. […]

  2. To acquire the chair AND the marvelous doll is excellent! I love her Hairstyle and the fabrics on her frocks. Her face is rather stoic, what a treasure.

    • The seller said they came out of a house together, so he was keeping them that way 🙂 The early child’s pocket she is wearing like an apron is also just an amazing piece. She is exactly the reason I love early dolls ❤

  3. Wow! Fabulous finds for your dollhouse!

  4. That is one of the most desirable papier maches I have ever seen in my life.

    • Thank you Edith, considering all of the stunning papier-mache dolls in your collection that is a huge compliment! I really love this doll. I’ve only seen one other that I love more, and she is very similar to this doll but with a slightly prettier face.
