Wooden Dolls by American Designer Alexander Girard

Alexander Girard was one of the important figures of American design of the postwar period along with George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. The primary focus of his extensive oeuvre was on textile design and his passion for the folk art of South America, Eastern Europe and Asia was his source of inspiration.
Originally Girard designed the wooden dolls for his home in Santa Fe; the originals from the Girard Estate kept in Vitra Design Museum.
