Collection of Four Folk Art Wooden Clothespin or Pin Dolls
These four dolls were made from wooden pins or clothespins. In the past, many children were content with home made toys - a clothespin, a dowel or stick and fabric scraps could make a little doll. My grandmother had a small box of clothespin dolls with hand drawn faces that she made in the early 1900's - I wish we still had them! these clothespin dolls are newer, and were purchased in various craft centers.
Included here are:
1. Clothespin doll with tartan skirt - Cape Breton Island, 1979 - 4"
2. Doll with a pecan head and clothespin body, purchased in North Carolina at the Wanchese Craft Center in 1972. - 6"
3. Pin Doll - Chipogan Farms, St. Denis - Richelieu, Quebec, Canada, 1974. - 6". The original tag is still attached (see photo).
4. Clothespin doll with wool dress, mob cap and knitting needles - Brockville, Canada 1970. - 4"
The clothes show some age-related spots and fading. These dolls are part of a large collection that we will be listing over the next few months. The former owner left a record of the date and place of acquisition. Some were collected on travels, some were gifts from traveling friend and relatives. All have been in storage since the mid 1980's.
We are happy to combine orders when possible.
