Adored throughout history for religious reasons, Santos dolls in current days are also much loved for their artistic beauty. As the dolls became more and more popular over the past few years, they now are highly sought after by artisan doll collectors. We have a large selection of reproduction Santos dolls and Santos cage dolls in our online store. Some of our dolls are rustic with chipped paint and faded eyes, and some are more refined with delicate paint, crowns and jewelry.
We have dolls that are reproductions from actual Santos antiques, and even a few that have been inspired by vintage European doll dress forms.
Santos, particularly the females, exhibit a most loving expression that is also complex and thoughtful. Their shape is often rustic in nature, yet with delicate details. They are sometimes painted in rich colors with detailed eyes.
Antique dolls frequently have glass eyes, while reproductions (as well as some antique Santos) most commonly have painted eyes.
The dolls emulate the image of Christ, The Virgin Mary, Patron Saints, as well as other notable figures in biblical history.
Our reproduction Santos dolls are an intriguing mix of 17th and 18th century religious history and a modern doll collection. Please look around our growing portfolio to see the brilliant details that have been hand carved and hand painted on each doll.
Each doll in our collection possesses certain traits that make her beautiful in her own individual way. Some dolls are basic and rustic, and others are refined and dainty. Each doll shares the same beauty.
Santos cage dolls in particular are quite intriguing. Some collectors display their cages empty and visible, while others dress the dolls or display object in the cage, such as small antique bibles, flowers, jewelry, or bird’s nests.
Please see the guide on the right hand menu to view the galleries of our collection, and our online store.
