Silent Church Doll!

You might be asking yourself what a Silent Church Doll is....

Back when I was little I used to go to church once in a while with my grandmother. She and other mothers used to give us children soft, silent toys to play with. The soft toys were called 'silent' toys because they made no noise when banged on the pews or dropped on the floor.
Brilliant idea.
This way the playing children didn't disrupt and distract, or annoy, everyone else.
:-)

This Silent Church Doll measures about 11½ inches tall. She is made from muslin, stuffed firmly, painted black, sanded, 'aged' and waxed. As I've stated before, this waxing technique makes the items look like they were made of worn leather. I love it.

And something else about these faceless Church dolls....they feel and remind me of the old rubber baby dolls that were popular when I was a child. I can't stop feeling these dolls.
:-)

The doll also wears a metal rimmed paper tag that reads DOLL. And she wears an 'aged' dress. She has a nice weight to her, too.

Remember, my items are not intended for children or to be played with.
And the stories are probably not even true!

I'm always happy to combine shipping if you want more than one item. Just let me know and we'll go from there.

As always, I ship Priority. If the price of shipping is less than you paid, I will refund the difference. If it's more than I quoted, I'll pay for it myself. And remember, never a handling fee.

All of my items come from a non-smoking home. I do have a cat, but he doesn't smoke, either.
