Linda's Santon Dolls

I love collections, and appreciate others who have the desire (and space) to show and share theirs. Since I've never been to Provence, I was interested in learning about Linda's beautiful collection of Santon dolls. The faces are made of clay, and each doll is dressed and carries a gift. The tradition is to include the "village people" bringing gifts to the Christ Child with the nativity scene figures. Linda's collection is beautiful.

Judith Du Pont:

I have a fisherman
Santon doll which my
cats accidentally knocked
over and damaged the doll
I think that it is
repairable. Could you
recommend someone?
Thank you.
Sincerely, Judith Du Pont
