Althea – the flying witch doll – is the one sent to fetch supplies (that’s her specialty – shopping!). She brings three pouches of a mysterious nature! Pouches are made of see through fabric and decorated with black feathers… can we safely assume that they contain herbs with a hint of potpourri? As with all her sisters, her dress detail is fantastic - the top skirt is made of rust colored hemp, the middle skirt is made in dark burgundy satin border trimmed with lavender eyelet lace border. To keep warm, she is wearing a granny type shawl. Even her face is impeccable in detail - pointy nose, purple lips, bicycle glasses and even a beaded earring.
And let’s not forget the “real” broomstick! Althea measures 20 inches long and hangs from transparent thread which is attached to her hat. Like all of our Pendle Witches, she comes with a booklet - The Trial and History of the Witches of Pendle as well as as booklet about Kitchen Witches.
MoonStruck Gifts is the only US source for the famous Pendle Witch Dolls of England. We’ve convinced them that it’s high time they agreed to grace the kitchens and homes of their American friends. And so, fresh from their flight o’r the Atlantic we are happy to present the infamous Witches of Pendle!
