Grodner Tal Painted Wooden Peg-Doll
Sometimes known as Dutch dolls these dolls originated in Val Gardena, Italy, although when they were made the area was German territory. Our Particular doll has the more sophisticated fully articulated hip and shoulder joints, her torso and head being carved, gessoed and painted while her rouge cheeks add to her comely appearance.
Like many antiques the general rule here is – the older they are the better the quality.
