My dolls are handmade; they have unique personalities and natural imperfections. Each one embodies a different quality. The long pins are Victorian era hat pins. It is normal for the pins to leave marks on the dolls if they are removed and then replaced. The dolls have weighted bottoms and hangers on their backs, so unless otherwise mentioned, they can stand on their own or hang on the wall. Many of the dolls have smaller glass pins for their eyes. All pins are stuck in, not glued, so be careful not to lose them. Each doll is approx. 8” x 5.5”, not including pins. These dolls are art pieces and are not intended to be used as toys.
