This is a Primitive Folk Art Patchwork Rooster Doll Makedo. This piece would display nicely as a centerpiece, shelf sitter, or placed on a bureau, table or halltree. The rooster measures 13 tall, 10 wide and 5 deep and would be perfect for your farmhouse kitchen and would also make a wonderful house-warming or bridal shower gift.
The Roosters body is sewn from a pieced patchwork of different fabrics; barn red cotton solid, hunter green and black gingham check, and a golden mottled print. The facial markings are cut from barn red cotton and adhered to the head while the cone and wattle are made separately from looped strips of barn red cotton and sewn into the seams of the head. The sewn-in barn red wings are quilted with sewn-in strips of matching colored coordinating fabric are frayed along the edges, wet and dried in a dryer to make them curly. The fluffy tail is formed from several coordinating fabric strips, wet and dried curly and sewn into the seams of the rear of the rooster. Black beads were stitched on for the eyes.
A wooden block was cut, sanded, stained and drilled for the dowel to form the Makedo base. Natural excelsior was adhered around the base of the dowel that is inserted into the bottom of the rooster.
I have given the Chick a primitive tag that I have coffee-stained and inked the edges with brown pigma ink and adhered a green print background with an image of a colorful rooster that says Rise-N-Shine. The hang tag is attached to the dowel and says Amberley Farm Exhibition, First Prize, Poultry Sold Here.
The mate to this rooster, the Prim Patchwork Hen & Eggs, are offered in another auction.
This piece was lovingly made by me using a pattern designed by Annies Primitives. Please note that the kitchen props are not included.
This design will come to you dated, signed and tagged with my own label Collectibles by Joan which states The Handcrafting and Time Invested in this Piece are its Own Mark of Quality.
