Lightbulb Granny Wood Doll

Granny Wood Doll

We know very little about her only that she is fully made of wood and looks very old, she stands at a height of around 17", has boots and wearing very old white blumers and petticoat and the old dress that you see her in here.

Bob got her for Wisey's Birthday some years ago from a anteque shop near Hay-on-wye Wales, not sure how much for and Bob can't remember, wonder if she was someone Grandmother and where did she come from?
Holly

We would love to know more about her, who she is, anyone knowing more do please post.

We do have antiques road show here in england, you must have it there too, they did come to Hereford at one time, that would have been a chance to have taken the Doll.

Here is the show in the Uk.

Very charming.

My grandmother used to collect dolls and a friend of my late mothers, but sadly many of her collection were stolen. Among all I've never seen one looking as old as this one. I think you have a gem here.

Best wishes

Harem

Stolen, that is really sad to hear Harem.

Yes the doll I've never seen one like her and the dress has a odd feel to it, we don't really know what it made from, Bob said the Lady he got her from knew very little about the doll, or where she came from.
