Item Description

Little Peg Doll, 'Grodnertal' Doll, in a fine, handmade cotton smock and pantaloons

In good condition, finely painted face, some paint on lower limbs, slight sliver of wood missing on right foot, image 5& 6

 

Peg wooden dolls, also known as Dutch dolls (German: Grödner Gliederpuppen), are a type of wooden doll from South Tyrol.

 

Called Peg Dolls because arms and legs are moveable as they have little pegs in the joints allowing flexibility, images 1, 6 & 7

They originated as simple lathe-turned dolls from the Val Gardena in the Alps.These dolls were sold undressed and young girls and children would then make their clothing from scraps of fabric.

Other similarly-constructed wooden dolls, using a jointing technique where the arms and/or legs are attached to the body with pegs, are some of the oldest surviving dolls and were made worldwide.
