Male doll before


These dolls came from Ireland and are very unusual.  The body is a hollow wooden box with wooden legs and a metal "walking" framework.  The head and arms are composite and one arm on each doll was badly broken.  The surviving arms were used to make moulds to produce new arms which were painted to match.

The old clothes had disintegrated, so they were copied but made removable for cleaning.
