3 1/2'' 1850S CHINA HEAD SEWING DOLL PINCUSHION,ANTIQUE PINS 810
Price / kg:
I truly love this doll and her history, she is a sewing doll about 3 1/2 inches in length as I received her,, a flat bisque head and arms, blonde molded hair circa mid 1800s.. I was told that these dolls were sold in kits to make your own swing doll or pincushion.. you bought the bisque parts and made a pincushion or pin holder around the mid 1800s.. beautiful girl doll with jointed arms,, her arms have darkened.. as I received her.. would estimate that she is of German origin and as you see her.. very nostalgic and historic little girl doll with some original antique pins and needles.. quite thick and heavy pins.. inventory 810 overall nice condition, her crimson red silk top is starting to shred. and I note a bit of a rub under her cute pug nose.
