A Schoenhut Doll Restoration

    I found a Schoenut doll!  A wooden doll, with compressed metal spring joints.  She is 14" tall, and dates from 1911.   She was in a terrible state, and needed to be restored as soon as possible.


        Her age was showing.  But, she warmed up to the camera and decided to stretch her limbs.



      For a doll that is 105 years old, she was beginning to feel younger, as we discussed her restoration process.  This was going to be totally different from any of the other dolls I have restored so far.

   
                         She leaned in a little closer to the camera, and said, "I am so ready!"



   
  Leslie, decided on a short hair style, rather then a wig.  She wanted a totally new and fresh look.


           Leslie and I hope your day is marvelous!!           Smile On!        Audrey
