If you were a collector of hand crafted dolls in the seventies and eighties, then you would have been familiar with American woodcarvers, June and Bob Beckett. These two dolls are examples of the fine work created by June, the wife of this artistic pair. The little girl is 12” tall. She has a carved head and hands and a cloth body. Her costume is completely original and is tagged “Beckett Originals, Rt. 1, Box 141 – 1A, Deer Lodge, Tn. 37726”. She has a tiny, turned up nose and detailed carved ears. Her eyes, brows and lips are hand painted. Her head is hand signed “Patty by June Beckett Originals, 5/12/87”. The baby is 11” tall and has slightly bent legs. The head and hands area hand carved and the body is firmly stuffed cloth. His original costume is tagged as the little girl and the head is hand signed “@78 Daisy, #2/25 by June Beckett Originals”. June and Bob Beckett are both deceased and their dolls are seldom found. Because the dolls were completely hand carved, their numbers were very limited.
