These replicas of the early 1900s “Penny Wooden” dolls are made in the Grödner Tal region where the original dolls are made. Each doll is turned and hand painted by the artist Judith Sotriffer who carries on this 400 year old tradition. Each doll is different. Variations in the wood and in the painting are to be expected and are part of the doll’s handmade charm.
The 29cm/11.41 inch size is perfect for sewing. In fact, she has her own set of patterns available from Wish Booklets. The round head of this doll makes it perfect for bonnets.
