Four Dancing Norwegians

By: admin | What's New | November 5, 2007
Norwegian Dolls

This is a new donation commissioned by the Minnesota Go-fer Dollies Doll Club as a memorial for Nancy Bergh, former MHS staff member and club member. Annie Wahl, a Minnesota dollmaker, who specializes in character dolls with a very distinctive look, sculpted them from polymer clay with Norwegian regional dress details.

They are delightful and will make you smile.

Linda McShannock, Objects Curator
