Male Doll from Room 11 - Withdrawing Room, Main Building Section, Pendle Hall. This doll sat on a chair in front of the fireplace.
It was created by Felicity Clemons as part of a 40 project to create a grand fully-furnished Georgian style country dolls' house. The project began in the 1940's when Felicity's daughter, Antonia, was given a three-room dolls' house by her grandmother. Mrs Clemons was not happy with its scale or authenticity and so began a rebuilding project which resulted in a four storey grand house, now known as Pendle Hall. Although some items were purchased during shopping trips to Melbourne, the majority of furnishings were constructed by Felicity's own hands, using numerous reference books and magazines.
Handmade wooden male doll. Hand painted with articulated joints. Doll is wearing a black jacket over a maroon waistcoat and cream shirt with matching bow tie. He is wearing black and cream plaid trousers. The man has a moustache.
