Wall Dolls ~Cloth Figures


Wall Dolls are a style of cloth figure that lends itself to adorning walls.


These are often dancers or mermaids. 

They have curtain rings ribbons or invisible nylon thread sewn to their heads or backs for hanging purposes. Some have gathered, tasseled bodies instead of legs, such as those made by Barbara Willis.
