Lindolley’s is a family owned business in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We began making antique reproduction dolls in 1987. We are certified by the Doll Artisan Guild and have studied antique dolls in several museums across the country. In 1996, we attended Martha Pullen’s School of Heirloom Sewing for Master’s courses. We have attended seminars in the home of Mildred Seeley on three occasions. Dollcrafter magazine has published over a dozen articles we have written, as well as featured our dolls on three magazine covers. In May 1993, an eight page showcase article was published in Dollcrafter on Lindolley’s. In 1996, we began writing articles for Gildebrief International magazine, published in English and German. At this time, two dolls have appeared on covers of Gildebrief and eight articles have been published. We have also won several Rosettes in International Competition for French Bebes and French Fashion Dolls.
In January 1993, we opened a retail store in Tulsa where we sold doll making supplies, heirloom sewing supplies, etc. For eight years we organized and held many seminars for the Doll Artisan Guild. Having a retail store left little time to devote to making dolls so we closed our store and continue to attend trade shows.
Each Lindolley is made with the finest materials. All
porcelain work is started in white, including Mulatto pieces. Most
dolls are one-of-a-kind. All dolls have Hand Glass Craft eyes from
England, handmade mohair wigs, dyed to match leather shoes with our
stamp on the sole, Batiste underwear with cotton lace, crocheted
button loop closure on all dresses, gold labels in the clothes and
come on a cultured marble stand with brass engraved nameplate. Each
doll comes in an elegant gift box and is shipped by UPS.
We accept PayPal. We have generous layaway terms. In general, we require 25% down with 3 to 6 months to pay, depending on the price of the doll purchased.
