In 1995, after years of raising a family, directing church choral and Handbell choirs on Cape Cod, I "discovered" the art of making porcelain dolls. Today my reproduction antique dolls and others are sold coast to coast. I continue to make dolls in my small studio in North Troy, pouring the molds and carefully recreating new dolls from start to the last stitch in the clothing.
I continue to occasionally make dolls in my small studio in North Troy, pouring the molds and carefully recreating new dolls from start to finish with glass eyes, human or mohair hair, leather shoes and to the last stitch in the appropriate clothing. When making a doll, I keep foremost in my mind: "The reproduction dolls of today are the antique dolls of tomorrow".
I do enjoy the challenge of restoring an antique doll to her true glory, and, helping a client to know what to look for when searching for an antique doll from the 1800’s and early 1900’s. They truly are treasures.
While I no longer display my work at doll shows around the Northeast, my dolls may be purchased at www.roseappleacres.com or at the studio in North Troy, 721 East Hill. My dolls are also displayed and available for sale at Long Meadow Farms, 59 Waterfront Plaza, Newport, VT.
The examples shown on this page are some of my very favorites of the past and present. Questions: email or call 802-988-4300
