It may seem like these vintage-looking, arcade-style dolls came from a carnival museum, but they're actually straight from my imagination. Inspired by old-fashioned boardwalk games and a lifetime spent at the shore, I created these Bride and Groom Knock-Down Dolls with the likeness of my favorite Asbury Park icon - Tillie... who finally decided to tie the knot!

Made to look lovingly aged, worn and knocked down over decades of time, these dolls are hand made by me using my own personal designs. The groom features my version of Tillie dressed in his finest wedding tails, striped vest and handmade bowtie. His bride is beaming in her adorable A-line dress, holding a bouquet of roses, with deckled ribbon trim at the base. The doll backs are made from upcycled vintage cotton fabric.

Each knock-down doll doll is sewn by me, outfitted with crazy faux fur, a band of trim near the base, then finished with vintage metal tacks. Each one is aged using various combinations of tea, coffee, acrylic paints... even dirt! Tillie and his bride stand tall on a sturdy base made from 1" thick pine, which I have silkscreened with the Knock-Down Doll logo, signed, dated and numbered. These one-of-a-kind modern throwbacks are the perfect gift for an engaged couple or as that unique wedding gift for your county fair, carnival, circus, or boardwalk-loving friends!

This listing is for one Bride and one Groom Knock-Down Doll with illustrated black backing and fire-red faux fur in the distressed-looking old style. Doll measures 15"h x 6"w x3.5"d. Additional options and styles are available. Ask about civil union couples. E-mail me for more information.
