TEDDY BEARS' PICKNICK artist dolls home



Lynne Roche




Starting as antique dealers, selling and restoring dolls, Lynne and Michael Roche made their first own design in 1982. They already had experience in making reproduction dolls. The couple find their inspiration in old photographs and paintings as well as nowadays children living around them.
Their dolls have that typical English atmosphere created by the beautiful styling by Lynne who dresses the dolls in beautiful Liberty prints and the excellent knitwear made by herself.
Lynne and Michael's dolls have always some kind of fairy tale atmosphere around them.
You may find their dolls in several toy museums around the world.




Please note these dolls have been especially created for collectors and are not suitable as a toy for children.



Thomas Bedtime


Just before bed time Thomas loves to go into the garden to say goodbye to all his small animal friends. His lovely chamber coat will keep him warm.


Thomas represents a 3 year old child dressed before bedtime in his chamber coat. He is marked in the head at the crown 'Lynne and Michael Roche' and in the neck 'Thomas Bedtime' 8/12 in red ink.Thomas is # 8 of a limited edition of 12. He was made in 1999 and is 40 cm, 16" tall. He has a paper swing tag on his wrist. This cute little boy has a 4 way jointed body made of flesh coloured tricot (which gives him an excellent feel when you pick him up). His head  (which may turn)  and his hands are made of very fine porcelain and he has heavenly blue glass eyes. He has a light-blonde wig made of real hair.

Thomas is dressed in flannel cotton pyjamas with a nice multi coloured  print. His red-gray-black checkered chamber coat has a red collar and a red-gray piping. Thomas wears red slippers with pompons and lined with the same fabric his pyjamas are made of.

With his soft facial painting this young boy has a wonderful look.
