Long time doll collector and Hitty doll carver Phyllis Morken passed away this past year and I have some of the Hitty's she carved to sell on Ruby Lane. This is a pair of her dolls. They are marked Hitty #1 and Hitty #13. I am thinking these are numbered in the order she carved them.
Hitty #1 is approx. 5 3/4" tall. Carved of all wood and jointed at the shoulders and hips. Black painted boots and white stockings with red bands at the top. Black hair carved with detail to look like spiral curls in the back, she has a few tiny wisps of bangs in the front.
Dressed in clothing handmade by Phyllis as well.
Hitty #13 is carved of cherrywood and is approx. 6 1/4" tall. Carved of all wood and jointed at the shoulders and hips. She also has detail that indicates carved curls and lot of wispy bangs in the front. Black boots, white stockings with red bands. Her slip has a knot tied in the waistline so I could not remove to show her fully unclothed.
Both dolls are in excellent condition and all ready to join a Hitty Doll Collection!
