There are six dolls in the Ladies of Wales, Merched Cymru, range. Standing 14" high, they feature individual head sculptures, reproduced in porcelain in Brenda's studio in the heart of Wales. Brenda also designs and makes all the costumes, whilst the replica accessories such as drop spinners and yokes are handmade for the individual doll by her husband, Roger. All dolls are numbered and a signed certificate of authenticity accompanies each creation.

Lyneth , Caerphilly cheese maker welsh doll


Until recently every farm in Wales made cheese, each having their own individual tastes and textures. Caerphilly has become one of the most famous, and Welsh Doll Lyneth is depicted carrying her wares to market. She is dressed in an open fronted woollen ‘betgwn’ (bedgown) with underskirt, apron and shawl. Her underbonnet is trimmed with lace and she wears a tall black felt hat. The basket is full of  cheeses wrapped in muslin, with smaller ones carried in the gathered folds of her apron.
As with all our authentic gift Welsh Dolls Lyneth stands 14” high (including hat), Lyneth has porcelain head, hands and half-legs. Her features are carefully china painted and she has life-like eyes and a soft brown mohair wig.
