These types of dolls are commonly known as ‘Dutch ‘ dolls, although they are German.  Huge numbers of simple turned and carved figures of various sizes were made.  They have peg joints.  ‘Dutch’ may be a corruption of ‘Deutsch’ (meaning ‘German’) or it may refer to the fact that many of these dolls were exported to Britain via Dutch ports.

Circa 1790
