We are very excited to offer here some very rare and wonderful creations by Mary Calehuff, called "Nodders". They consist of 2 or more components designed and balanced to go together and enhance movement. A counterbalanced weight inside the body helps produce the movement. Antique nodders are very rare and rarely available. Each of these nodders are hand sculpted in papier-mache, and carefully hand painted and detailed. All toys and embellishments are authentic, or hand made reproductions, and any baskets are hand woven. Each piece is limited to a production of 25 or less, and are signed, numbered, and dated in the year of it's copyright. As a symbol of good luck, a lady bug is included on each one. Please take a closer look at these fabulous pieces, by clicking on a picture.
