Mattilda & Annie, a Primitive Elf & Raggedy Ann Doll Set

These sweet girls are Mattilda & Annie. Mattilda is a Big Christmas doll, measuring 30″ tall from head to toe.  She measures a full 27-28″ when sitting.  Mattilda is an original, one of a kind muslin & fiberfill creation. She’s  been hand-painted top to bottom several times and has been sanded & aged, giving her such a lovely, vintage patina, like the toys from so long ago. Mattilda has been sealed so that she may be lightly dusted after display. Both dolls have knees which are sewn through. Annie may be displayed separately, if you wish. However, she only sits with assistance.

Mattilda’s sweet face has been been carefully painted with a variety of media. Her nose & bottom lip have been needle-sculpted by hand, giving her a cute little pout. Her hands are needle-sculpted as well.  She wears detailed boots, complete with tan socks & red laces.

Mattilda’s shirt has been made of white muslin. Her apron dress is a 100% cotton print with the cutest red polka dots. The hem has been hand-stitched in contrasting red thread. Mattilda’s blouse features hand-stitching around the neckline, sleeves & back. Vintage brown buttons adorn the front. Both the apron dress & blouse have been tea-stained for an old time appeal. Annie’s skirt is a 100% cotton print & features brown hand-stitching.

Little Annie has been made of stained osnaburg. Her face has been painted with various media & has been sealed. Annie’s torso & stockings are painted as well. The star she holds is a muslin creation. It has been painted, aged & dusted generously with glass glitter. It is sewn to Annie’s hand. Annie’s hair is red mohair. It has been sewn in place. She has embroidery thread ribbons on each pigtail.

Mattilda’s hair is 100% mohair. It has been attached with needle-felting & a touch of glue for extra security. A cream ribbon holds her hair in place.

Mattilda & Annie are available now on Ebay. They will end Sunday, Nov. 21st at 9:15 PM EST. Click here to bring this set home to you for the holidays.
