Handmade Alpine Man Cloth Doll by Donna Lee Martin

This precious doll was handmade by Donna Lee Martin (1933-2023) of Center Barnstead, NH. He is made of stockinette, with a molded, painted face. His body is softly stuffed. He has a human hair wig, moustache and beard. His jacket and lederhosen are wool. He has hand knit socks and hand made boots with leather uppers and wooden soles. He wears sunglasses to keep from being blinded by the reflection of the sun on the snow, and a hat with a feather in it. His jacket is labeled “Made with love by Donna Lee Dolls.” I call him Alpine Man but hopefully his new owner can give him a name. He is in very good condition with no odors. There are a couple of tiny moth holes on the back of his pants. A wonderful doll to love and cherish.
