Poor peggy

Swinging Peggy

This little doll is about 25 years old. She came from a craft fair in Leighton Buzzard. Me and my sister used to go and stay with our Aunt in Essex and she took us here and bought this little peg. I remember very clearly tying her to the plastic fly curtain that hung over the back door and swinging her back and forth.

She was glued together as most peg dolls seem to be and the glue is deteriorating. She has a hand drawn face and wool hair with a thick cotton fabric for the dress decorated with purple ribbon.

I’m suprised she is holding together so well considering how much I played with her; much more than Queen Elizabeth.
