Hitty's Footstool

Many of you already know that Dave carves Hitty dolls and Hitty accessories from time to time and this bone foot stool is his latest work done on commission. He has done several bone and ivory Hitty footstools in various styles. For those of you that are not familiar with the storybook of Hitty's First 100 years, while she was sailing aboard the whaler Diane-Kate, the sailors carved her a "bone footstool". There is no description of the footstool so Dave takes artistic license when he creates these charming miniature footstools. Hitty stands 6 1/4 inches tall. This miniature bone footstool is approx 2 5/8 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide by 1 1/4 inch high.
