Doll Arts: Peddler Dolls
"As a conversation piece in fashionable drawing rooms in nineteenth-century England, few objects could rival the fascinating peddler doll. Given a prominent place on a whatnot or the mantelpiece, and usually sitting beneath a glass dome to protect it from dust, the peddler doll would be dressed in the traditional red-cloaked costume, carring a tray or basket overflowing with miniature wares." by Goodfellow

She wears her original costume of printed cottons, and of course there is the classic red wool cape (very slight moth issues on reverse) and poke bonnet. The tray of wares features a delightful assortment -- books, ribbons, a sewing necessaire, beads and even a tray of sweets.
