Mrs. Providence Oldacre -
Huge Halloween Doll
Appalachian folk artist
Simple Primitives done in the tradition of old
Today I have a wonderful huge
doll. She is 34 inches tall. She is one of the most beautiful pumpkin
head dolls I have ever seen. She is a design by one of the greatest dollmakers, Pine Berry Lane. Mrs. Providence is rag stuffed and
extremely heavy. She has a stitched nose, her lips have been stitched
on, she has vintage buttons for eyes, and wispy linen flax hair. She
wears a worn dress that is brown and cream checkered with two tiny
pockets sewn on the side. Her olde pin keep pillow is filled with wood
shavings that dangles from a vintage key that is tied around her neck.
It has a poem embroidered on it.
The poem embroidered on the pincushion says You need not be
afraid of me, I'm just a grown up pumpkin seed. You will love this
doll. She is truely amazing, and did I say huge! NOTE - This doll is extremely
heavy and large.
God bless you.
