"Peggie" is a peg wooden doll. These woodens were made for many, many years in exactly the same style -- from mid-1800's through the 1920's. This doll is made of pine or other soft wood, rather roughly cut and turned on a lathe, with a tiny piece of wood carved for the nose on the larger versions and simply painted on the smaller ones. The joints are mortise and tenon and held together with unevenly carved pegs -- hence the name "peg wooden". The "hands" and head/neck and lower legs/shoes are painted over a whitewash sort of sizing, and the shoes ARE bright pink! These were very inexpensive dolls, available for a few pennies -- they are sometimes called "penny woodens" as well as "peg woodens."
