A collection of five wooden stump dolls, hand made in Lancashire by Robin & Nell Dale in the 1980s. The couple made a large variety of different dolls. They were all hand painted and designs were only made in small batches, and each doll is slightly different. The dolls in this collection are Admiral Mainbrace, a Middlesex Cricketer, a Lawyer, Cecil Cleaver the Butcher, and the Ripon Hornblower. They are all jointed at the shoulders. They are all signed and have their model name on their bases. A couple also bear the year they were made - 1986 and 1985. These are beautiful little decorative pieces.
The measurements given are for Admiral Mainbrace.


  • H: 18.5cm (7.28in)
  • W: 6.5cm (2.56in)
  • D: 4.5cm (1.77in)

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
