Hand Carved Queen Anne Dolls and home of the carved wooden Queen Anne TOPSY-TURVY: A Truly One-of-A-Kind Art Doll





 Queen Anne, Higgs, Grodnertal, Tuck Comb and my newest idea: Topsy-Turvy Queen Anne Dolls

**Topsy-Turvy**

The above picture is of my latest Topsy-Turvy doll. She has glass eyes. She is about 9 inches tall on her stand.

Here she is a white Queen Anne. It is really amazing how the doll is completely transformed when she is set upon her stand and her skirt set into place.


**Topsy
When she is flipped and the skirt reversed she becomes a black Queen Anne.

All dolls are hand carved by me Anne Reiss MFA New York Academy of Art

When I first built this website I was making porcelain cameos. Thus the name Cameoqueen. However after carving wooden Queen Anne Style dolls for about 10 years I finally decided to use a name that more accurately reflects exactly what it is I do. I have changed my Ebay identity to Lindenwoodlady21, the type of wood used to make the dolls. I will continue to use this domain name of Cameoqueen.com since I am very fond of this website.

I am happy to make a wooden Queen Anne Style or Grodnertal doll or Topsy-Turvy to your specifications. Here is a topsy-turvy doll I recently completed.

Here is how she looks with her skirt in place and a bonnet on her head. She has glass eyes and is about 10 inches tall on her stand.

And here she is as a black Queen Anne. It is really amazing how the doll is completely transformed when she is turned upside down and her skirt covers her secret nature.

The original couple Higgs is also believed to have carved Lord and Lady Clapham. The colored photo is my version of this couple in the black and white photo above. Please click on any photo to enlarge.
Each doll takes a few weeks to complete. Every part of the doll is hand made and hand carved. I even make the antique style eyes myself out of kiln fused glass.

Here is my newest spinning wheel, a Scandinavian Double Table wheel probably made by Michael Wilson in the 1970's.



For Your Information


All my dolls are completely carved by hand using sharp chisels. I use no duplicating or carving machines. As a result each doll's face is unique and none of are ever identical.
I sew all the doll's clothes by hand. I use a sewing machine on internal seams only. Anything that can be seen from the outside is stitched by hand.
I make my own glass eyes and for hair I spin mohair on an Ashford spinning wheel. Each one of my dolls is a one of a kind, original work of art.
