Tea Party Set
by Nancy Latham

Unique Artistic Cloth Dolls & Paintings By Nancy Latham

Cloth Dolls by Nancy LathamNancy Pedroso Latham was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States in the early 1960s. Her collectible dolls, The Wistful Children, are inspired by antique photographs of children. The dolls are costumed to represent these children, and accompanying some of the dolls are photographs of the children they portray. The dolls' bodies are made of cotton, while the faces are structured and covered with cloth, and then painted by hand.
