Pedlar peg

This is another doll bought at auction, and a lovely example. She is a pedlar woman and carries in her basket:

A doll, dolls house, cotton threads, a picture, a boat, cricket bat, rolling pin, fabrics, buttons, cook book, a portrait and knitting.

She has little felt hands with fingers and a woolen shawl. One of my favourite parts is a wooden nose, the only one of over 100 dolls in my collection to have such a nose. The painted face is very characterful and covered with a sort of stocking material.

She has a patterned skirt with a black top edged with lace and a white apron. She wears a matching black and lace bonnet. I’m not sure how old she is but she is certainly at least vintage.
