Some lovely ladies...

Have you ever heard of Tassel Dolls? I came across one recently and wondered what they were. I tried to do some research but it is very limited and what I found was vague. If you have any history on these dolls, I'd love to hear about it. I did see that they originated in the Victorian era when wealthy home owners used these unique dolls to hold back their curtains, thus the name tassel dolls. Apparently they have porcelain heads and arms, but there body is simply comprised of tassels that hang and cover a stand that holds them up. They usually have lots of beading and frills. I found some that really caught my fancy.

They are beautiful dolls! WOW! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
P.S. Be real sweet to add them to a Tablescape decor for a ladies event or something...

I have 9 tassel dolls. I did not pay much for them (average $20), but I love them.
