Vintage String Marionette Girl

sm Wooden Marionette Girl 3


Sometimes one can find great joy in playing with marionette dolls. Today I have listed a vintage marionette that was made in 1980 for the Tellon Collection company.

She is dressed as a country girl with patches on her dress and wearing a straw hat. All wood: head, body, feet and hands.


Selling for $40 plus S&H – those who live locally can pick-up, saving them the S&H costs.

Check her out at

No need for electricity, just your imagination.…

I’ve been busy taking pictures and researching my dolls, their value, their history, etc.  So far, I have 19 dolls uploaded and listed for sale, and at least that many (if not more) ready for upload.

Welcome to Davina Dawn’s Sales Page

Our girls are grown, and with our last one departing to her first apartment  in ME, in preparation for her senior year at college, I decided to reduce what I did not need for future sewing, or desire to hang onto, as some items are simply things the girls would not want passed down to them if God decided it was my time. In my attempt to…
