SANTOS Cage Doll 30", Shabby Primitive Santo Mannequin

** Back in stock! **

This beautiful lady is a vintage-style Santos Cage Doll. She is fair-skinned, with slightly rosey cheeks and brown eyes. Her hair is brown, and she has a dark mustard brown body (with a red trim around the neck line), cage and base. She is approx. 30 1/2 " tall, with a 7 3/4 " wide base.

She can be beautifully dressed in a gown, be used to hold trinkets and flowers inside the cage, or even as a doll dress form! (Accessories not included)

The lady's upper arms rotate slightly, and she is jointed at the elbows for limited movement. No permanent poses. Joints may not move symmetrically - i.e. one wrist may have more movement than the other. This is common, as they are hand carved and jointed by hand. She is a combination of wood and resin, for perfect detail. Hadn't we known differently, we could have sworn that she was 100% carved out of wood!

She is a combination of wood and resin (plus some metal joint pieces), for perfect detail. Hadn't we known differently, we could have sworn that she was 100% carved out of wood!

Note: The crown shown

Your doll will match beautifully with antique decor, vintage decor, religious relics, shabby chic, or Italian, Spanish, French, South American, Central American decor. She can be beautifully dressed in a gown, be used to hold trinkets and flowers inside the cage, or even as a doll dress form! (Accessories not included)

(Make sure to check our other Santos (Cage) Dolls, too!)

Handcrafted workmanship
Variations occur with each handcrafted piece, particularly when being ‘antiqued’. This is character, and not a flaw. And since the dolls are crafted to appear antique in nature, they may include some of the following: distressed or chipped paint, minor splits in wood, some cracks, variations in paint shade, variations in joint resistance, exposed wood in joints, and other artistic process imperfections, yielding different results on every doll. And, although all dolls of a same model are remarkably close in appearance, there may be signs of aging that are not identical to her ’sisters’. Additionally, dolls are made by various craftsmen and receive different ‘personal touches’… It’s the beauty of artistic hand made versus robotic machine made.

All the above are stock pictures from our studio collection.
This sale is for the Santos only; any other items potentially present in our picture(s) are not included.
Your Santos will be very, very similar to the lady shown. Please keep in mind that her arm motion-/posture-capacity may differ from (i.e. be more, less, different, or similar to that of) the Santos in these stock pictures.
