 New Design for Pedlar Doll

 

 

 Pedlar Doll Black Measure 1

I have now redesigned my pedlar doll. She is slightly smaller than my previous doll. She is the correct scale to represent a 12 inch Victorian pedlar doll. She will be perfect to display in a glass dome on a Victorian mantelpiece.

 As you can see from the picture she is no more than a inch tall.

 Pedlar Constance King Book

My inspiration for my pedlar dolls is the from the above picture which shows a 'papier mache doll with a Godnertal-type wooden body dressed in Welsh costume with a red silk-lined pedlar's cape. Items on the tray include books, scent bottles and playing cards. Circa 1840. Height of doll 11 inches.'
