Doll from Room 2 - Nursery, Basement, Left Section, Pendle Hall. From rocking horse.
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 1940s 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, hand painted wooden male doll with articulated joints. Doll is wearing a cream outfit with navy blue collar and cuffs like a sailor suit.
