Orphans of the Enchanted Woodland Volume I presents a small compendium of the first three years of Orphan dolls designed and constructed by Melissa Hirst Chaple. The Orphans are up-cycled, reclaimed, transfigured vintage 8.5" porcelain collectible dolls made by the Russ Berrie Co. in the 1980-1990's. As a part of the international handmade movement of this decade they have become a small symbol of innocence and friendship in an otherwise cold and uncaring world given by one friend to another. This is their story.
