Hitty Doll

The first Hitty is a antique peg jointed wooden doll representing the figure of a child. The doll was purchased by a couple of ladies for an antique shop in 1920. They wrote a book, Hitty, Her First Hundred Years, detailing the imagined adventures in the first hundred years of the Hitty doll's life.  Many carvers have carved this doll for collectors. This is my first attempt in carving this doll. It is not a exact copy of the first doll and is not meant to be.  She is 6 1/4 inch tall. Hopefully I can carry over the things I've learned over to the next one I carve.
